While at Bahia Tortugas, one day all of the cruising boats anchored in the bay were boarded by the local Navy. One boat tried to sail out and were headed off by a fast moving boat and ordered to wait for the inspection.
The officers were courteous and efficient when they came onto our boat. They boarded the boat without any damage to our vessel (always a concern when someone comes alongside). They asked to see our documentation, clearance, and fishing licenses, examined our radio, looked inside our storage areas and then left.
