Sorry about the confusion, but I fully meant it to be whichever you want. Just remember that if you leave the USA and join the People's Republic of Western North America (or whatever they choose to call it, you might only get back in if you can declare "Political Asylum". Of course, since you have a boat, you could make some extra bucks hauling illegals in both directions.


We were visiting the Keys once soon after they were going to secede and become the "Conch Republic." Seems the Feds had blocked off U.S. 1 and were searching cars for drugs that were coming in and out of the Keys so they were all up in arms because it was affecting their tourist business. Some of them were serious. To this day you can buy "Conch Republic" license plates, T-Shirts, and hats. - Art
