USA CLOSED FOR BUISNESS!

Postby boatguy1 » Sun May 31, 2009 10:28 pm

With the passing of the new Border Agency (Homeland Security) rules on Passports, there should be many more boats for sale, along the Great Lakes, Washington State and the Northern East Coast of the USA. All of those boaters can no longer just run into Canada for cheap beer, inexpensive wine, discount gasoline, almost free cigarettes, great scenery, super-empty anchorages, and a hassal free wekend. Without a curent passport ( TOO expensive for Americans) our Pristeen Waterways will be free of: smokey exhaust ridden gas guzzelers, over fished, loud and obnoxious, over bearing, beer can toting, BOATERS.
Sorry to see you're not back.
Just blame GWBUSH jr.
He set it up for you

That's the funniest post I've seen in a long time! If GW Bush set it up for us, I'm really glad!

Let's see, a passport card costs $45 the first time, and is good for 10 years. Amortized that costs you 37.5 cents/month. After that, it's $20 for 10 years. If you can't afford that, you really have no business owning a boat in the first place, or traveling abroad for that matter.

If you need the larger book format, it costs you $100 the first time, good for 10 years, $75 to renew for another 10 years. $10 a year? That's one meal in a relatively cheap restaurant.

Nah, Americans can afford it, and will REALLY head across the borders to trash adjacent countries! :-)
