Re: Bahamas Serious About Proper Clearance

If you are progressing through a countries territorial waters purely for the purpose of transiting the area to reach your destination, you are entitled to innocent passage and are not required to check in. You are subject to that countries laws however

Anchoring, ( that is non inconsequential to navigation ) or visiting a port is not classed as innocent passage.

He said there was no way. They went on for a while and finally they agreed if he cut the wires to it, they would allow him to continue. So, he did.

Band B, It was radar detectors in VA. They gave my wife a choice of getting a fine and putting it in the trunk or he could smash it on the roadside and proceed with no fine. (Maryland car)[/QUOTE]

That's right. Thanks for correcting me. I remembered part but not all. And they obviously were very aggressive.
