  1. http://cbsa-asfc.gc.ca/media/facts-faits/096-eng.html I believe this was posted on the CBSA website on 7/8/2011.
  2. I hate to say it, but this just will not work. this get brought up every year. Two years ago off Toronto Island I watched a small boat, one guy in it, troll right underneth another guys planer board line. If the guy did not know enough to drive under his planer board line, he will never know to look for a flag. the next day off Toronto Island, I had a blow boater run right thru two of my offshore planer boards, stripping a half core and full core that I had on my port side. We tried to get them in in time, but could not and he cruised right over there. If the sailer does not know enough to run right over my yellow and red boards, then they will never look for a flag. My advise is to get a airhorn or whistle of some kind. And when that dont work...... some of the GLA posts recommend educating other boats with flare guns and 1 oz sinkers.
  3. I just use extra offshore released that I have lying around http://www.team-fishigan.com/FT/fixed_slid/fx.htm
  4. I also want to add. They can not enforce something in one area and not enforce it in another. The law is for the entire United States. I have seen the document that was given to the Lake Erie Charters. http://www.clevelandlakefront.org/Lake% ... Boats1.doc If they enforce "After having conducted any activity in foreign waters other than for simple navigation to points in the U.S." then they are enforcing a law that does not exist.
  5. http://uscode.house.gov/uscode-cgi/fast ... +2033+0++() AND ((19) ADJ USC):CITE AND (USC w/10 (1433)):CITE The above link, title 19 sec. 1433 is the law. Anything else that you see on this topic is an interpration of this law. There were a few articles writtin on this topic in late march that were incorrect. Even one in USAToday that I believe reported false information. Since then, there were some more articles written on the topic in early April: http://www.freep.com/apps/pbcs.dll/arti ... 8804060642 http://www.thetimesherald.com/apps/pbcs ... GgtS46E%3D Straight from the US code of Law: (A) any vessel from a foreign port or place; (B) any foreign vessel from a domestic port; © any vessel of the United States carrying foreign merchandise for which entry has not been made; or (D) any vessel which has visited a hovering vessel or received merchandise while outside the territorial sea; If you do any of these, then you need to report to US customs. More info on the topic: http://www.cbp.gov/linkhandler/cgov/tra ... ea_faq.pdf Page 6 of the above pdf. "What about commercial or charter vessels that enter international waters but do not dock at a foreign port? Are its passengers required to present passports upon returning to the United States? No. As long as a vessel does not call at a foreign port, immigration law does not consider this a "departure" from the United States and therefore upon return, is not considered an entry that would require a passport. Therefore, passports or other designated documents would not be required for those, including commercial fishermen traveling on a vessel that sails from a U.S. port and returns without calling at a foreign port." http://www.cbp.gov/xp/cgov/travel/pleas ... erview.xml 6th paragraph down: Any small pleasure vessel leaving a United States port into international or foreign waters, without a call at a foreign port, does not satisfy the foreign departure requirement. Therefore, certain fishing vessels, cruises to nowhere, or any vessel that leaves from a United States port and returns without calling a foreign port or place, has not departed the United States.
