      Abbreviated rules   07/28/2017

      Underdawg did an excellent job of explaining the rules.  Here's the simplified version: Don't insinuate Pedo.  Warning and or timeout for a first offense.  PermaFlick for any subsequent offenses Don't out members.  See above for penalties.  Caveat:  if you have ever used your own real name or personal information here on the forums since, like, ever - it doesn't count and you are fair game. If you see spam posts, report it to the mods.  We do not hang out in every thread 24/7 If you see any of the above, report it to the mods by hitting the Report button in the offending post.   We do not take action for foul language, off-subject content, or abusive behavior unless it escalates to persistent stalking.  There may be times that we might warn someone or flick someone for something particularly egregious.  There is no standard, we will know it when we see it.  If you continually report things that do not fall into rules #1 or 2 above, you may very well get a timeout yourself for annoying the Mods with repeated whining.  Use your best judgement. Warnings, timeouts, suspensions and flicks are arbitrary and capricious.  Deal with it.  Welcome to anarchy.   If you are a newbie, there are unwritten rules to adhere to.  They will be explained to you soon enough.

BVI charter question

Recommended Posts

Have heard that clearing customs is not necessary if you go over to Saint John for a day. Obviously I know it is illegal, but does US customs turn a blind eye to charter boats stopping by for the day?

In the old days I think that was true. Have a friend that used to be a charter skipper down there in the '80-90s. We were talking about just this last week, he said all his current captains friends say it is a no no now.

A really bad idea. You are looking at possible jail time for the skipper if caught. One USVI charter skipper recently spent 6 months in the pokey for this sort of thing.

 

Both the USVI officials and the BVI officials take a very dim view of people flouting the customs and immigration laws.
