Have had dozens of Cruising Licenses and mine expired on the stated date, not when I left US waters. I often leave and return (Florida/Bahamas) under the same cruising license as long as it has not expired by date.

Last year the fee was $27.40. It is illegal for a foreign vessel to move in US waters without a Cruising License or a POP.

They don't tax you/fine you for overstaying your cruising permit???

'stored' can that mean in the water in a marina?

Because that could be highly advantageous if I decide to do some land travel in another country for a year.
Is there a time limit of the 'storage'?

You'll pass within sight of my home a couple hours after departure. I'm just south of the big radar installation on the western shore. I'll keep an eye out!

Re: Clearing boat out of the USA in the Chesapeake

Alternatively you can call Customs and Border Patrol in Baltimore. They have an office downtown, pretty easy to get to.

They MIGHT be able to give you the lapsed work you want. They are probably the same office where you got your cruising permit.

OR check in on the French side of St Martin at the Island Water World near Marina Royal. You just do it on a computer and pay a couple of dollars. I’m almost positive they don’t look for clearance papers.

BUT ALSO there are a bunch of different CBP districts and each enforces the rules differently, with no side knowledge that “their” way is not universal. That could account for different experiences.

Get your East in early. Parker says strong trades throughout January. Iím leaving 2AM in a couple of days for St.Lucia. But Iím a gentleman and gentleman go to weather in an airplane. From St.lucia heading to Martinique. Eventually will get to leewards either then turn around and go back to Grenada or do SDR to Newport. Be nice to cross paths. Will track you on MarineTraffic.

We are laying in Simpsonís Bay, St Maarten. The wind is crazy erratic, almost nothing to gusts near 40k. Saw a small ďdirt devilĒ on the water yesterday, think we had one hit us last night.

Re: Clearing boat out of the USA in the Chesapeake

Feel your pain. Be in Rodney on Monday. Want to just up to Martinique. Trivial sail . But have company coming into Marigot st.lucia in a couple of weeks. Ridiculously worried if I can get two one day windows in that time frame. Before coming home for Xmas never saw a full main. Not once since November.
Upside is just about everything is a reach and you can do hull speed all day long if you want. Donít worry....be happy.

Yes, Stored on the hard or in water (not moving). Hundreds of Canadian boats are in this situation every year when they are stored for the summer in Indiantown, Green Cove and Titusville. No cost other the the $27 for the permit. Don't know about time limit but many Canadians do it for about six months.

Re: Clearing boat out of the USA in the Chesapeake

Which is much more lenient than what Canada allows.

There you get a season and then have to pay a hefty (import?) tax. Unless you run off 3 or 12 miles and then come back.

Canada does not provide “exit” papers either, or at least I’ve never gotten them.

I have two American friends who got 1 yr. permits that were then extended to 18 months in Canada then a few hours across Lake Ontario and back for another year..... no taxes, no fees.

Neither are foregin cruisers required to check in with CBP every time they stop the boat as in the US.
