I'm in NZ now, but aiming to get to the US in the next three months to look for a boat. I'd like either: something small I can sail from the east to the west coast
through the Panama Canal
, then sell, or, a liveaboard
I can bring back here (NZ).
If anyone can direct me to a thread where I can discuss the legalities and coast guard requirements of leaving US waters I would be grateful.
