[QUOTE=svBeBe;1675030]USA documented boat with 2 Americans aboard.
Montenegro required captains licenses June 2014.
required captains licenses July 2014.
required copies of captains licenses when cleared in at Manfredonia in September 2014.
And every one of those countries also required copy of our radio
To muddy the waters even further in Montenegro the beaucrat wanted our capt's license
but reluctantly took our asa
book with the stamps in it. We had to go back with additional insurance
as we had 500k usd and they require 1m euros. The port capt was in then and said something about the capt license and asked how we got here and we said sailed and he said across the atlantic and i said yes - 2 person crew - everything changed and we were welcomed in immediately
checked in and was never asked for anything except insurance
and boat papers
checked in and out 3 times and only once asked for license and when i said we did not have one skipped over it and went on.
No request for license in Portugal
No request for license in Corsica
which is kinda France
In Albania only our boat papers and insurance and it all goes through an agent.
I think only Montenegro wanted our radio
So it is a real mixed bag. If i were to go to Montenegro again and the beaucrat was in and no license and said i would have to leave i would ask for the port captain
and meet with him as he is big boat officer and understands.
