US Customs and Immigration is an adventure

Very hard to give definitive information about the workings of Homeland Security. It seems to be run differently just about everywhere. We entered at Fort Pierce, Fl a few weeks ago and it went fine. Called a 1-800 number (sorry it is on the boat and I am in Canada now) and had to go to the local airport the next day to check in with Immigration. People there could not have been more helpful or courteous. Have entered at Atlantic Highlands, New Jersey from Bermuda and done it all on the phone without going to an office. Friends entered at Staten Island, NY (only a few miles from Atlantic Highlands) and had to borrow a car to drive to JFK airport (a long way away!) to finish entry - why they could not have gone to Newark airport which is much closer I have no idea.

You buy a ticket in this lottery and you will get a prize of one sort or another.

After the refit we have decided to sell Ainia. We want something smaller that would be could for the light summer winds of Lake Ontario, although we plan to spend at least a couple of winters in the Caribbean before heading north.
