My only interest is to contribute to the knowledge base of the YF members based on a Master Mariner ticket and 40 years at sea (comes with age). If I can help others learn by my mistakes and experience, then the effort is worthwhile. I cannot assist the inexperienced, ignorant, and unwilling to learn who believe they can sail around the world and do whatever they want because they are Americans and believe that their boat has some modicum of sovereignty in foreign lands. In reality all vessels are required to obey the laws of the host country as enforced by their Port State Control. Your flag serves only as a clue to what embassy you will have to contact to get yourself out of jail. Importation of arms is also illegal in the Bahamas as it is in most of the Caribbean and worldwide, although if you have the weapons and ammo locked in separate lockers the Bahamian authorities can be quite accommodating. Other governments, not so much. Good luck.
