The threat is real. If you ignore it and show up unprepared, be ready for fines. In America ignorance is not a defense.

OK, and in all the other countries ignorance is a defence? I think when you get out there you may find that the jurisprudence is not as predictable, and shall I say nice, as in the US.

Back home on Lake Ontario after something over 36,000 nm circumnavigator. Not surprisingly there is a lot of stuff I want to get done on Ainia both cosmetically and functionally. Getting an early start so it will be ready to go for next summer (Lake Superior?).

Re: Voyaging on $500 per month

UP, A few years ago I left this country for 5 years., courtesy of the US Navy. Do you know what I missed on? A song will come on the radio and everyone will know it, but not me. Politics have never been an issue because of my absence. That crap just keeps going on and on and on and everyday there is another thing we gotta fight against. Man, you sound like you are going to have a coronary about all this stuff. You can't stop it, just chill out a little. Be Frugal. $500. a month remember?

Anyway back on topic.
Next time you quote someone you may want to remove the irrelevant parts.
union I dont quite understand what this is all about are you stil reffering to me and my post or what?

what quote?

you are reffering in the case if florida to a state, in a specific country in a specific geographical part of the world

while im with you on certain rights, boating rights and cruiser rights I can hopefully offer this advice:

once your out there and cruising you will have less strong and extreme opinions on certain things and many you will simply shrug a shoulder to...

you will become more lax, more understanding, more peacefull...

one of the great things about travelling and cruising for us in this case is the acceptance of other cultures, ways of life, religions, traditions even social and economic as well as govermental systems...

its the differences that make us equal...

I hope you find a way to do this

take care

You should do some research. Bahamas cruising permit is valid for one year. $150 for vessels 30 ft and under and $300 for vessels 31 ft and over. This includes a fishing permit. Repair parts may be imported duty free.

From Noonsite:





And yes I agree, lets end the political rant.

Re: Voyaging on $500 per month

Mike you shouldn't miss East coast all together. This is a mistake. The low country is beautiful. Why would you miss it because of the politicians? And people are not suing all the time. It is just that you hear about it. Anyway, there are the Appalachian the beautiful keys the Savannah and Charleston ( those are the places i know ) Whats the point of traveling the world if you start taking out of your list a good part?

US is beautiful from what i have seen.

Thanks Kostis, wise words. I'm still a couple of years from having to make the decision between doing the Bahamas jump, or perhaps leaping down the east coast in big hops.

I love travelling in the USA. I do it fairly regularly on land (often by motorcycle). Like most Canadians, I live very close to the international border. I love the land, and the people. The problem for us frugal sailors is that the cost of healthcare and boat insurance is so high in the US.

Just about anywhere else in the world healthcare is easily affordable, but if I break my leg in the US, I could be financial ruined. From what I understand (and from the reactions from our American friends) going without significant boat insurance also seems to be a mistake. Both these items will put a major strain on our budget. So sadly, it may come down to a cost-benefit analysis, which when you think about it, is appropriate for the homeland of "free" market thinking .

That was not my implication. Some countries are far worse, take for example the ones who prosecute you for murder when you kill in self defense. Yes the US is predictable. If your filthy rich you can murder someone and get away with it, If your poor, your going to jail for 15 years for having a small amount of drugs on you. Back on topic please.

Charleston was very nice. There are still places to anchor, thou I cannot recall a good place to land a dinghy for free. Downtown is awesome, and there is a ton of history.
