A long time ago my ignorance got me boarded, when without realizing it I had entered into U.S. waters. They couldn't have been nicer or more helpful!

I've always found the US Coast Guard to be friendlier and more polite than municipal marine patrols--just from my experience.

We were boarded last weekend. All so a sudden they were right next to us, I guess 750Hp will do that!
Three nice very nice guys boarded. First question do you have any firearms onboard I said right there in the backpack he said just don't reach in there no problem! Very professional quick look around a few questions and that was it. The one thing that surprised me is on his report he had to note the location, he had to ask me the name of the island we were next to. I said you should know that it's named after your boss Trump Island next to Decatur, he didn't think I was funny

How are you getting them and how do you know they are there?
A website you can point me at perhaps?

Yes they did.
I was nervous at first, but they were very nice, professional, and after a quick chat and look around, just asked me to head north a couple of miles. Surprised when later looking at a map how close to the southern tip of Vancouver Island that invisible line is in some places. They seemed to be very used to us Canadians wandering over the line, and weren't too concerned. Now I own a boat with a fancy GPS and would know. 24 year old me, in my old elcheapo smoker craft had no clue that i was not still in Canada.

Fireworks this year- locals and USCG looked us over several times, saw all of the gray heads aboard and kept going.

Hmmmm, they were afraid the US was going to invade Canada via our many pleasure boats. SMILE

I was a joint exercise with the US and Canadian coast guard. LOL
