Re: Advice request. Dominican to Great Inagua

It's always good to remember that a US flaged vessel can go to Cuba in a case of repairs needed to keep the vessel safe ! IE. say ya lose a thru hull and had to plug it and now ya can't run the main engine! ya call the coastys and they will give ya permission to land to make needed repairs ! Just saying ya can go to cuba if ya NEED To ! just a thought !

I'm keeping this in mind. Who knows, on the way to Mexico my metric framus might blow the flux capacitor and I might have to stop off in Cuba to build a new one out of 1957 Chevy engine parts.

If they ever do open Cuba to the gringos I'll bet you could make a heap of money buying classic cars and shipping them back to the states.

Maybe offer to trade them new Toyotas.
