    Well thanks folks. We had put the boat up on the hard in January last year and left it in Monterey Bay while we went back Thailand and then to Bamfield to work for the summer. When we arrived back in the States I was shocked to find that my cruising permit was soon to expire and the boat had to leave the US within a few days. "No Exceptions" was the kind government officials exact words. I even offered to pay a bond, but was told I would be fined a minimum of $1800 and have the boat impounded.

    So with repairs only partly done we set off. And of course the weather did not help at all. No wind or strong wind from the south. We did manage to make it out of the US but it was interesting to say the least. My Thai Admiral got to witness what the adventure lifestyle she loves looks like up front and personal. LOL.

    ENtering LOng Beach harbour at night was interesting. The easy part was getting in then finding out that the Immigration office was closed for the night meant that we could not check out of the US as instructed. Then trying to find a birth, amongst the freighters and commercial boats was fun

    I see this thread is old, but, I have a question.

    What radiio gear did you carry on board your boat?
    I used to chase radios. Now I don't.
