Hmmm.... I am quite sure. I actually talked to the US. Custom in Dutch Harbor, AK. Hong Kong or China
does not have any treaties with United States regarding cruising rights. The vessel can enter Dutch Harbor and can go to Nome , AK. But not allow to land in any other places.
He is the gate keeper in Dutch Harbor, it is his rule
regardless if it is right or not. He warned me the a similar incident happened just last week. He advise me - Don't do it.
That is reason why I seek info to make the boat to fly U.S. flag.
