Re: Ships Papers

LOts of us are husband/wife teams. You really should have a "Change of control" document. Assuming the very worst happens, the party listed on the ships papers becomes incapacitated or dies. The survivor sails into port.

Some places the boat will not be allowed to leave, nor can the survivor so anything with the boat (sell f.eks), until the estate is settled.

A simple notarized document (or witnessed) saying something like:

In the event of my incapacitation or death, XXX assumes the position of Captain with all the rights and privileges association with that position, including, but not limited to, sailing the boat onwards to any destination, transfer of the boat to any destination by any chosen 3rd party, sale of the boat.

That's pretty clear language and will allow the survivor to retain control of the boat.

Re: Ships Papers

With regards to the ship's stamp, if you don't have an official #, I think your HIN would be a good substitute, something that ties the stamp to that one vessel specifically.
