To The Yacht, Lovey

Customs and Border Protection has announced a new program to make it easier for pre-registered recreational boaters to return to the U.S. after visiting foreign ports. The program, called the Local Boater Option is only available in select ports from Tampa to the U.S. Virgin Islands. Pre-registered arriving vessels will only need to report in via phone. Everyone else has to arrange for the normal face-to-face screening.

Seems like a good idea as long as the 2007 Terrorist Regatta is not in town.
