That's somewhat true - I have been in and out of the French Islands using their D-I-Y computers
probably a dozen times - but - and here's the "but."
- - You have to fill in the blanks on the computer screen
form and some of them are selected from "drop down" window lists. And they are normally in the French Language or at least a French language version of the English
Language which makes the selection of the proper entry a matter of hunting and trying to decipher what they are talking about.
- - So a five minute session can take 20 minutes, not to mention the French keyboard. But anyway, under boat "registration" I do not think there are provisions in the computer program for selecting anything other than "les États-Unis" or some other national country's name. In other worlds there is no place to enter a USA State's name (e.g., Florida).
- - Since you are dealing with a "computer" and not with a live official, I don't think you could fill out the computer form correctly with only a U.S. State boat registration
- - But what's the big deal with not getting a USCG documentation
anyway and totally avoiding these questions and hassles? The whole USCG documentation
can be done D-I-Y from instructions and forms available on-line at the National Documentation Center website.
