Its crazy on my first day out in the harbor. My brother and I decided to cruise around and check out the huge tankers and such that were docked. We took our camera and were just snapping photos of whatever. Within 2 minutes we were descended upon by 2 25' USCG boats and one 25' LA Police boat a total of 12 people. They checked our camera and did a full on background search and boat search before letting us go. Kinda scary but exciting at the same time. Post 911 world we live in now.
Just try comning into Dover harbour without informing anybody prior- you would be lucky to see daylight again before 10 years. Glad to know the boat is up and running.
