Default U.S. Customs boat tested in local waters.

I live and boat in the St Augustine area and have seen many of the Dept. Homeland Security/Customs 43' and 39' Midnight Express's out on the water over the last several months. There is a business just north of the St Augustine airport that maintain and stores these boats in their lot.

There are many DHS boats that run the waterways in our area. The ramp is within 1/2 mile from the inlet to the Atlantic and on any given day you can find several putting in and or pulling out.

The drug runners have their own choice of fast boats.
