We are going through the process of de registering our yacht from USA registration
(She is in charter
in USVI) to Part I of the British Ships Registry, in the USA the dinghy
has to be registered too.
I have just spoken to the UK Maritime and Coastguard Agency about the requirements for registering a dinghy
, they tell me that under British Law the dinghy does not have to be registered although its a seperate vessel......they then said that I may cause us problems going into some foreign ports
with an unregistered vessel......so what do I do?
It seems a bit extreme to have to register my dinghy under Part I also, what experience have the British cruisers had on entering a foreign port with an unregistered dinghy.
Also if the dinghy is unregistered will I be able to insure it.
Any advice would be appreciated.
