planning carribean and atlantic.

Im planning to sail the carribean and atlantic sometime in spring of next year. What my question is about firearms in these areas. im planning of passing between grenada and trinidad. Are there any problems ill encounter having firearms on board? i intend being in international waters the whole time. Whats the law exactly on firearms on boats anyway?

Re: planning carribean and atlantic.

In international waters you can have whatever you like onboard. Once in port, you need you national gun permit and a very serious gun locker. You will report the gun to the local authorities and they will tell you if you can keep it or if they will keep it.

In international waters there's no problem. If you intend to go in port, the gun laws vary by country.
