Capt. Berto

 Berto has been on the Dragin Fly since before the beginning, helping James finish the boat.  He knows where every wire and hose is laid and he has as many hours on the Dragin Fly as Capt. James, who is on a much needed vacation this week.  

James took his family to Colombia....no, not South Carolina. 

It is easier for a Costa Rican citizen to sneak across the US border than obtain a valid tourist visa for the purpose of tourism, aka spending money in the USA.   Apparently owning a charter boat, owning a house, multiple properties and having a family, his ties to Costa Rica are deemed insufficient.  The United States is terrified that he will overstay his Visa.....but they are willing to charge him $350 for another interview to see if his situation has changed. 

The immigration system from top to the bottom is broken and will not be fixed by Presidential Proclamations.  Congress needs to get off their ass and fix the problem. 

No pics, but report from Capt. Berto: 

Dec. 16    13 tunas, 1 sail and 1 big blue marlin today

Dec.  17   12 dorado

Dec. 18    8 tunas, 4 dorado, 1 sail, 1 blue marlin
