Hey Aaron, for whatever it is worth, vega is one of the few on here I respect along with you. Good fella if that is worth anything from my opinion. Good sailor. You two would see things eye to eye.

Re: rammed:by the customs & border patrol

In Canada my boat is a private residence, and it is illegal for anyone to come aboard uninvited, without a search warrant. To get one they have to present some pretty convincing evidence to a judge,and that can be challenged. I would never allow anyone aboard . Offshore, some sharp things sticking out, take care of any uninvited inflatables. I once ripped open a US coastguard inflatable that way. The harbour security guard said they would be scrubbing toilets for a while, for that screw up.
I wouldn't cruise any country which allows a bunch of macho foreigners to enforce their own law in their country.

Just josh'n with him, I'm sure he is. I couldn't help but think of this thread over the past hour as we moved a fuel barge to the other side of Miami harbour and saw the Border Patrol Board an incoming Cruiser with a yellow flag flying in Goverment Cut. Those of you who are'nt sailing right on the front lines of the game are'nt getting boarded and don't see it like those of us who are. I don't think a week goes by that I don't see boat's being boarded by one of the many agency's with boat's out here. And you know what, they are alway's the nicest guy's you'd want to meet. I've never had anything to hide and it usually end's up with them having a laugh and scooting on their way.

Re: rammed:by the customs & border patrol

We've been confronted a few times in the past few years. Law Enforcement seems to be more aggressive these days.

That's what I was thinking. We have never been boarded at sea.

You ain't young, you ain't purty, and you ain't a girl.........

Opps!

You right about that one. I remember these boardings around here occurring regularly since at least 1995. It may be related to the large military presence in the area.

Re: rammed:by the customs & border patrol

LEO's all profile. They may throw in the random counter-profile boarding, so they aren't accused of it. Think about it, if you are boarded more than average for your area.

For example, you see a rag tag sloop in poor repair at max capacity of teenagers aboard and what do you think are the odds that it has proper safety gear? It may, but the odds are lower than the 100ft flag blue custom sloop with a professional captain at the helm and the missus sitting in the cockpit with a cucumber sparkling water.
