Re: Cuba

I am surprised no one has mentioned the possible legal issues. Are you an American citizen? Is the boat a US documented vessel? If either is true, you should do a lot more research before deciding you can leave Miami and just pull into Havana to refuel. US citizens are prohibited from visiting Cuba (there are exceptions none of which will apply to you). Purchasing fuel will be an additional violation of the "Trading With the Enemy Act." While there is a probability you may not be stopped or bothered, the downside if you are is very expensive and may cost your delivery customer his boat. Leaving Miami and heading straight to Havana at 24 knots is a very good way to attract a lot of unwanted attention. You might want to chart an alternative course.

Planning on pulling into Marina Hemingway, fueling up spending the day in Havana and heading onwards the following morning.

What are the custom's and immigration fees? Anyone have any clue on the rough cost of diesel in Cuba?

check out the Impi blog. Impi

They have quite a bit of info and advise from their recent trip there in April.
