How wrong I was -- they weren't interested at all. Azores is EU, so they need to see any papers or anything.

This is with a EU (Dutch) flagged boat and owner, so it might be a little different if you're from across the pond.
Strange.. Horta I understand as it an entrance port and one has to use the marina.. however. once cleared in... if I then decide to head for Terciera and anchor off Praia Victoria I don't have to show anything.. only if I enter the marina.

I was just saying it is a completely different procedure in Portuguese (and Spanish) marinas compared to France/UK/NL/DE/Scandinavia/Greece/Turkey/US where once cleared in you only need to pay, not show all ship's papers every bloody time.
