Stamp

Hi, does anyone have experience admitted that it helps to use a ship stamp in relation to authorities around the world?

Or has the time overrun of that kind?

I think of various papers to be carried in, for example, customs, port authorities, etc.

PO

Re: Stamp

Use the search function. There is a thread on this but I don't recall the title. My takeaway is that an "offical" stamp or embosser helps, especially in smaller communies, to give you an air of respectability and to be taken seriously. Thus, more respect repeaped. We bought an embosser instead of a stamp. It really can't hurt to impress (ha ha!)

Re: Stamp

I did read somewhere that business cards with the vessel name, registration number, flag and an email address made a difference to the attitude of officials in some countries. If nothing else it shows you are prepared and gives the official something to attach to his records.

Thanks for your response, similar to my own way of thinking, then produce a great stamp or whatever it is called.

Should there be logo on?

I have tried to find a thread, also believe to have seen one, but not today, because there are so many threads

Good idea with Business Card, the one I had not thought of it gives a little more options for presenting station than a stamp

Thank you very much

Yes, checking into Manta, Ecuador several years ago I had to sign about 50 copies of papers. My hand was very sore. Got a stamp after that but never had that many papers again.

Hi Greg

How shaped your stamp.

With boat name or your own name

I think of

Yacht name.

Register, flag

Home Port

As well as an Email.
