Hello Captain Doc! Welcome to Cruisers Forum.

I presume you are looking to aquire a yachts port exit papers? I don't know if the US still issues departure paperwork.

Here are the requirements for arrival from the Customs and Border Patrol. if no one else responds maybe you could call a local arrival reporting port and ask someone.

I am preparing to sail to Panama in April and to clear in there one needs to present his clearance papers from the last port of call. Checking the Customs and Border Patrol website there is no information about leaving the US if you are a US citizen in a recreation vessel. Last couple of times that I cleared into the Bahamas they did not ask for a zarpe from the US. It seems logical that if you are leaving your home country your normal boat registration should suffice in a foreign port.

Unless you intend to sail direct you will be entered and cleared somewhere else and have everything necessary.
