Cruisers Permit

I called the Maine customs office that deals with such things in Bangor today asking about cruisers permit and where and when we need to get one since our boat is on the hard in Maine but won't go in the water till Maryland. The person I spoke to was great he said we would need to get one when. We put it in the water in Maryland...then he asked where are hull is manufactured I said the US (it's a Hunter) he said if we have documentation showing that our hull is of US manufacturing we should present that when we apply for our cruisers permit since then we would be eligible for a successive permit, meaning we would not have to leave the united states every year and then reapply for a permit. I have never heard of that before but it is great if it is true. Has anyone else had experience with this and know anymore about it?

Ahhh so the custom guy was not quite right...since we are non US residents we do not qualify...darn knew it was to good to be true. It is so hard finding good info on the permits the officers tell you different things from the website and the website info is not always that great.
