Need help with US CBP cruising permits?

I have a Canadian registered boat is VA. I had a cruising permit, expired Oct 2011. I want to bring her back to Toronto. Can anyone point me in the right direction with regards to US Customs procedures/permits.

Re: Need help with US CBP cruising permits?

Only to say, enquire discretely, and do not mention VA, your name, or the vessel when you do. It is possible that someone in Customs will decide a penalty MUST be paid for this lapse and...does the phrase "sneak out of town" seem relevant?

If you could simply exit the US and make your next landfall someplace where you don't need exit papers to arrive...that might be the simplest way to cure the problem. Even with a penalty, they may rquire you to exit the US directly and for at least 15 days before re-applying, which could put you in the same situation.

So ask discretely, and if they have any discretion in the matter, call back and beg mercy. US/CA customs tend to be casual but these days, you never know who has a Napolean Complex.
