The Coasties always knew who I was & where we'd been, in the 1990's.

We used to cross the stream to & from the Bahamas at night. Invariably, we'd be queried by an unseen USCG vessel or aircraft. As soon as we identified the boat name ("Southbound"), they knew who was should be aboard and that we'd wintered in Staniel Cay.
