At the marina where I used to keep my boat on a lift there was always a group of old people sitting on the dock.I never did it but wanted to get a few guys that look the part and all walk to the boat carry a piece of cloth luggage.Then come back a few hours latter with them empty and some flour wiped on them.

When I am on a closed inland lake and someone calls a speedboat a drug boat they automatically get filed under "moron" in my mental file cabinet..
Then again half the people I meet are in that file..

I used to hear that comment about my Baja so much that I actually thought putting "De drogas en barco" on the stern....

But then again I still wear a ponytail, might have drawn to much attention.

In the winter of 2002, I took a trip in the Cafe to the Abacos, Bahamas, the Berry Islands and Bimini. In the Berrys we were desparately looking for gas for the run back to Miami and pulled up to this small island and asked a guy (he was on a cell phone) where we could get gas. A few minutes lator the local police showed up (he was on the phone with them) and decided we didn't look right and accused us of running drugs. My friend and I were separated and grilled for a while as to where we had been etc. Then they started searching the Cig and all compartments. I remember him walking down the center of the cabin and stomping down with his foot and commenting that it felt hollow. I quickly showed him the drain next to the cabin door and noting that there was drainage from the v berth area under the cabin floor. There was an awful lot of tension for about 30 minutes as to what was going to happen next as I pictured them with a chainsaw starting to cut. He searched all baggage (we had been on this run for a week and there was a lot of bags) and then proceeded to the engine compartement. The next thing I remember was one word from him to his superior "sattisfactory". It was a very nervous time when they were searching, but they were just doing their job and this Bahamian Police force was very professional. I think we were the talk of this little Island as they weren't too many people living on it at this time of year. The same guy helped up get gas, dock the boat at the marina for the night and served us drinks at the bar. He just followed us from point one to the other. A true story.
