Baja Haha News From Latitude 38 Today, Oct 1. 2014

Paperwork Review for Baja Ha-Ha

October 1, 2014 – Going to Mexico

While reminding everyone that the Baja Ha-Ha does not do TIPs or Nautical Visas for anyone, we'll try to review the process one more time to answer common questions. (The Dona Jenkins Maritime Document Service in San Diego, 619-223-2279, will do TIPs for $150.)

SUGGESTIONS FOR APPLYING FOR A TIP at www.banjercito.com.mx/registroVehiculos:

When the site asks for your 'Document' after asking for the 'Name of the Importer', they are asking for your passport number.

For 'Date of Entry', put 27-10-2014 if you're doing the Ha-Ha. For 'Valid Until', put 27-10-2024.

When they ask for 'Vehicle Identification Number', we put our boat's Federal Documentation number. The folks at Dona Jenkins say if your boat has both a Hull Identification Number (HIN) and document number, Mexico prefers that you use the HIN number. We don't think it will be the end of the world if you put your document number instead of your HIN, as we did, but you never know. When we get to the first Banjercito, we're going to look into it.

Under 'Make', you probably have to select 'Otros' or other, because your boat manufacturer probably won't be listed. Once you get to 'Classification', most of you will choose 'Sailboat, inboard diesel'.

When they ask for 'Recreational Vehicle' in Step 3, do NOT list your dinghy and outboard. If you do, they'll only be good in Mexico for 180 days. The 'dinghy' business, such as it is, isn't until Step 5. At that point they don't ask for your dinghy per se, they ask for your outboard's serial number.

With regard to the 'List of Accessories and Belongings', we know it's a confusing list. The one thing you don't want to do is say you have more stuff than you do. Because in the unlikely event you ever get inspected, and you don't have all that stuff, they will likely assume you sold it in Mexico, which is illegal. On the other hand, if you buy new stuff in Mexico, such as an outboard, what are you supposed to do, get a new TIP? Hopefully carrying a receipt would be enough.

'List of Accessories and Belongings', believe it or not, is where you list the serial number of your diesel(s) and the outboard for your dinghy. There is no place to list a dinghy, sailing dinghy, life raft, or any other such major items, but they want to know if you have a "hand dryer." We offered to help them create this form, but we were not taken up on it.

Do you have to get a TIP before sailing to Mexico? In the old days, you did not. After last year's fiasco, everyone we know highly recommends it. Some Ha-Ha entries have gone to Ensenada in advance and gotten their TIP. This seems like a lot of extra time and expense, but it gets the job done. You cannot get a TIP in Cabo. This has nothing to do with hurricane damage, but rather the fact that Cabo never had a Banjercito, the military bank where you get a TIP. There are Banjercitos at Ensenada, La Paz, Mazatlan and Puerto Vallarta.

If you want to get a TIP via Dona Jenkins, you have to get them your information two weeks in advance.

If you do the application online, you'll get it back via DHL in seven business days. Consider this: Mexico apparently picks up the tab for the DHL shipping, which means they probably only take in about $15 for each online application. Crazy.

John Pernitzke of Nova reports he was unable to get past the first page of the TIP application despite filling in all the boxes. We suggest he read what we've written above and try it again. We suspect that he's been doing something wrong, such as the wrong number of digits in a box. We've had no trouble.

Rob Orr of Fast Reorrg reports that when he applied for a new TIP to add new gear, the site said he already had one (which he did from April of this year), and that he couldn't get a new one without canceling the old one in person. Our advice is to not sweat it. You've got a current TIP, and our understanding is the Mexican government is giving everyone until the start of the year to update their TIPs. Indeed, if there is anything radically wrong with your TIP, as long as you have one, you should have to the beginning of next year to get it right.

NAUTICAL VISAS:

We haven't heard of people having many problems getting nautical visas online. Once again, apply for them individually at https://www.banjercito.com.mx/registroEmbarques, keep the receipt form that you print out after completing the online signup, and get a receipt or statement from your credit card company also. Keep these until you leave Mexico. Unlike TIPs, you get a nautical tourism visa when you apply. When you get to your port of entry, you trade it, at no additional cost, for a 180-day tourist visa. Good luck!

In other Ha-Ha news, we've broken down the 170-boat fleet into 14 divisions. In the past, we usually grouped boats by three criteria: 1) length, 2) whether a boat had a full keel and otherwise seemed like a cruising boat as opposed to a racer/cruiser or racer, and 3) whether it would be sailed with 'white sails only'.

We've changed things this year for two reasons: 1) the unusually small number of classic cruising boats entered, and 2) the huge increase in the number of 'white sails only' boats.

As such, we've grouped boats primarily by two criteria: 1) whether they are 'white sails only' or spinnaker/gennaker boats, and 2) their length. The results aren't perfect, but with such a large fleet, they are the best the Ha-Ha computer could do.

It's just 26 days until the start of Baja Ha-Ha 21. Here's the complete fleet list:

- latitude / richard

WHAT RICHARD FAILED TO MENTION DESPITE KNOWING ABOUT IT!!!::::
this is news since last haha, also.
richard has mentioned it already in other editions of latitude 38. oops.

one MUST fill out another tip for one's speeding boat dinghy. any sportboat, which happens to include your avon, achilles, caribbe, and what have you, and planing engine, btw, MUST have a t i p for them as well as a t i p for mother ship. that is why the dinghy is not mentioned any longer on the t i p form. is in need of another form, one for it's self. oops.

this is as much for your protection as for mexican bureaucratic paperworks. remember there are dinghy thefts and bandidos everywhere, and this official listing of your possessions is important for your own porotection and potential return of property. .

Is this true for a 14' inflatable sailing dinghy? No motor.

Re: baja haha news from latitude 38 today, oct 1. 2014

For reals? $150ish worth of TIP?
On a different note...
If one is to be trailering a boat into Mexico this year, is it better (easier) to get the necessary TIP's before hand, online? Or does that just confuse everything, and I should just get my TIP's in Nogales???

Not sure where the $150 came from because a TIP is $50US.
Trailer boat, Sailing Dinghy, row boat, floating lawn chair...they all need a TIP and while technically you can get it after you get to Mexico...why would you want to wait and risk a problem? I'd do it online and be clean. They are good for 10yrs, so $50 for 10yrs...try those reasonable fees in California...ha ha ah

Re: Baja Haha News From Latitude 38 Today, Oct 1. 2014

third day-- the 150 is dona jenkins' price for doing the work for ye. i prefer to do it meself in mexico. is not hard, and is 50 usd per each . with dona jenkins doing it, the price would be 300 usd for 2 boats, which would be only 100 usd total in banjercito, anywhere in mexico

brian, get it in nogo.

you need one for each sport boat and one for the mother ship.
sport boat was defined as sailing or motorized.
jet ski is also a sport boat.
rowing is still not a sport thank gods.....

So can I assume an inflatable kayak is a row boat, not needing a TIP?

Re: Baja Haha News From Latitude 38 Today, Oct 1. 2014

Well, I was mostly asking the question about getting my TIP's online compared to getting them at the border. I imagine I'd save time by doing it online, at home, but I was curious, if having my boat enter the country by land via a trailer made any difference, and would it be obvious when I filled out the forms?
In 2011, I sailed my boat down from Cali. I used an agent in La Paz to get my TIP. A few months later, I tried driving the trailer down through the border, and as it turns out, if you want to import a trailerable boat, you HAVE to bring them together. So, I forked out over $400 usd just to be able to drive my trailer to San Carlos. Then having left the trailer for over the six months it was allowed to stay, I forfeited the $400.
Not only that, but last year I sailed EVERYWHERE in Mexico without ever checking in. I was afraid of the TIP fiasco that was going on. My boat didn't have an H.I.N., but hanks to modern plaque engravers, it has an H.I.N. now. My TIP said I had A.C. and inboard engines...I don't. I was sailing on eggshells all last winter...
I just wanna make sure I cross all my t's and dot all my i's so I can rest easy when I'm actually down there trying to rest easy.
If I can avoid an excessively long stop at the border (it's always a bit long) by getting my TIP's online beforehand...that'd be great!

Re: Baja Haha News From Latitude 38 Today, Oct 1. 2014

brian..if you can get tip online, more the better. it took me exactly one hour in person at banjercito in mazatlan when i got mine, but that was a few years ago, 2011. back then it was 65 u s dollars.
i have yet to check into anywhere except by radio after i left zihuatenejo--is a radio thing now-- some folks still go to port captain office, but about half of us dont. they know who is where. in barra lagoon, port capt runs around occasionally in his sport boat panga and checks everyone out.
yeah the tagging of boats also got me a lil nervous...they didnt come to barra, i noticed. just keep papers handy and current, and should be ok....
love how your cat 2 fold looks with shark teeth and flames...awesome!!!! hope to see you again this winter!!

Re: Baja Haha News From Latitude 38 Today, Oct 1. 2014

Just a little confused, you mention that a rowing dinghy doesn't need a seperate TIP and a sport dinghy with planing motor does. What about a dinghy with a small 2hp outboard, definitely not sporty nor planing.

It's $50 for 10yrs....so my recommendation is why take the chance or fret over it? Don't leave it up to a Local Inspector to agree with this or that interpretation of the rules when you don't speak Spanish for heavens sake. Just get a TIP for all your Dinghys and relax and enjoy Mexico.
