Many US cruisers may not have been counted in the US 2010 census. It is still not too late. Until July 30th you can call 866-872-6868 between 8 am and 9 pm eastern time and be counted. It is toll free if you're in the USA. Else, hope you have skype

This counting is important as liveaboard boaters are often not accounted for in many statistical projects including the census.

Brenda, I just tried to call that number you gave, and the interviewer barely spoke English. I asked her where she was, because she sure sounded offshore to me. In heavily accented English she did her best to enunciate and said "I not allowed to say where I am but I serve West Coast of America." I told her I'd think about it.

Blessings,

Normandie

It's legit. Check out the Census site link:
