Now that it is -20 c outside and my sailboat is frozen on the hard
, I thought it would be a good time to find out about that infernal paper war that government
bureaucrats seem to love.
The Admiral and I have been sailing out of Thunder Bay and were wondering on the best way to head
south (the US border is 30 minutes by road) to visit Minnesota
. On that vein, Isle Royal is visible from Thunder Bay but I hear you can only visit there from US ports
Anyone familiar with the border hassles (if any) and the proper procedures that won't get the USCG mistaking my for a baddie? Do you always have to report in to the nearest port-of-entry? How about those multi-passes? Do I need an American VHF license
for my Handheld VHF
Any gems of wisdom from those experienced would be appreciated.
