I don't know who else has gone through this but I have been pulled over by just about every government agency that can do so.. This weekend was the latest. While fueling up in Islandmorada I was questioned by the US Border Patrol. He actually asked to take pics of the boat to post on their internal website. I was on my way to Marathon with my Dad to do some fishing. The officer stated that he was sure he would be getting a call from the Monroe County Sherriffs office the moment I arrived in Marathon with the vessel. OK so it's a 25 Powerplay Open Fisherman with T-300s but I was really going fishing... I swear..
He was cool about it but I have now been pulled over by US Customs, Miami Dade Police Dept (w/ K-9s), FLA Marine Patrol and now the US Border Patrol. Geez... Actually they have all been pretty cool but again Geez...

DNR=Department of Natural Resources or Game Warden.Mostly nice guys with an occasional a-hole but they have a job to do.Most of the people they deal with DO have weapons so they can be nervous.Be polite and hope for the best!
