|SailKing1||If I'm not mistaking that buck fifty for the Bahamas is good for 3 or 6 months. And typically from my experience all you have to do is call Customs to clear when re-entering the US. Provided you have nothing to declare. I have made the trip a number of times and never had a problem.|

It could have been for several reasons. It may have been that they were notified of a similar boat suspected of nefarious deeds. I have been stopped here along the Maine coast because I was in the vicinity of a suspect and driving a similar boat. I will add that as soon as the cg realized their mistake they explained their actions and were very polite and reasonable. It could have been a "training exercise" done for the benefit of the newbies. That does not excuse their leaving you with a bad taste in your mouth. It may have been just one of the minority of jerks who find their way into positions of responsibility in our law enforcement ranks. Unfortunately their rude behavior is what tarnishes an otherwise positive reputation as professionals. It gets weeded out eventually. You should get ID from their boat and the charge person for your boat's log. If you feel you were treated with disrespect it is your responsibility to contact their office and report that incident. Negative reports in the person's file are a disaster for them and no one who is pursuing a career can afford that kind of evaluation. We all need to be both respectful of their job and responsible for reporting bad behavior.
