Made it to the Detroit Boat Show Friday. I was short on time, so I did not have any time to look at things. I was mainly there to gather information. So I headed for the Boarder Patrol booth first, to find out why I had received a new preapproved Nexus card, without having to go in. I thought it might be a scam. They said no, that they are so over loaded that they are using the past records of the people that had been previously approved, ( this was my 3rd card). I activated the card and there was no activation charge for the card, like the 2 times before.
Next, was The Canadian Customs. I had heard that the ban had been lifted, and it is.
You can run their waters without calling in, as long as you do not drop anchor, raft off of another boat, or touch land.
If you are going to do any of these you must call in. There report in number is.
1-888-CAN-PASS or, if this is easier (for me it is) 1-888-226 7277.
You can use the port of entry land line or your cell.
As I said, I was short on time, however as I was walking by, it looked like Chaparral was well represented.
