Do You Really Know Who Is On Your Boat ?

There was an interesting article this week about the authorities boarding a foreign flagged boat in Oyster Bay on Long Island New York. THE BIANKA LOG BLOG: DO YOU REALLY KNOW WHO IS ON YOUR BOAT?

The trip, with more than 15 relatives and friends, was supposed to be the high point of a weekend family reunion. But a few hours into the cruise, after what began as an apparently routine stop by a marine patrol of local and federal law enforcement officials, two passengers — a Guatemalan caterer hired for the day and Ms. Rich’s boyfriend, David Quinn, an Irishman who had worked for years as a horse-carriage driver in Central Park — were taken away on a police boat by federal immigration officials. Both men were illegal immigrants; they now face deportation.
Just another reason why I don't own a foreign flagged mega yacht.

Capt. Mike
