Re: I told everyone to avoid MEXICO. Here we go...

The whole point of being cruisers, is to tell long rambling stories that have no point, and to argue nits until like the black holes in the universe disappear into themselves. To adjust the temperature just add your favorite perception altering substance. If he wants to get serious, he can come down and work on my boat for 12 hours a day for free, while I scold him.

Damn. The brochures don't mention ANYTHING about that.

Man, if I was actually cruising somewhere warm, I wouldn't even check email.

Re: I told everyone to avoid MEXICO. Here we go...

After awhile all the locals have heard your stories, and when you start, they will politely walk away. So you have to expand your audience. When cruising, you have to keep moving so that you have a different audience every few days, depending the volume of stories you have to tell. Or if you are snowed in, come to the internet.

Re: I told everyone to avoid MEXICO. Here we go...

Did this get posted yet? From the southbound yahoo group, penned from Ulises Osvaldo Tomas Canseco <ulises.tomas@sat.gob.mx>


Quote:

allow myself to mention you the following:


In most of the 1300 verified vessels which had no problem and were certainly not impounded, neither the owner nor any other person was on board; however, touristic marinas, following Mexican port and customs regulations, provided documentation proving legal entry into the country of such vessels. Through provided documentation, auditors were able to identify data corresponding to those 1300 vessels. From this it can be deduced that auditors are able to identify vessel data.

As it can be seen, when touristic marinas comply with regulations and provide to the authority all documents in order, whether owners are present or not, vessel will not have any problem.

In this sense, I mention to you that the reason why around 300 vessels were precautionary impounded was because, regarding those vessels, touristic marinas did not provide any documentation proving legal entry or it was not possible to relate the provided documentation with the corresponding vessel.

Therefore, the authority granted a period so that documentation putting this omission in order was presented. Accordingly, for every case where the right documentation proving legal entry of such vessels was presented, the corresponding ruling shall be issued in strict compliance with the law and so the vessels will be released.

Best regards

Re: I told everyone to avoid MEXICO. Here we go...

Hi everyone! Think of CF as a soap box! Don't get overly excited at everything you read. It's one thing asking for advice on how to clean a fish, however it is another determining the meaning of life.

I'd stick to advice that is rock solid coming from pros/old salts with tons of experience. For debatable/controversial subjects, I'd live those to the wind. There's never a good reason to be a "drama queen". If you play with swine, you'll smell swine. Swine is cheap around here.

Re: I told everyone to avoid MEXICO. Here we go...

there is nothing wrong with sailing into thru and within mexico. cruising mexico is very nice and pleasant experience.
locals are good souls.
the only folks i have felt wa need to avoid have been cruisers from some places north of mexico who have little moral character combined with bad attitudes, and disloyalty ..... not many of those, thank gods.
there is no bureaucratic hangup with the correct paperwork, which are document, insurance, and t i p . is a good idea to include passport copy and visa copy. marina will take care of you.
of course, if you rather remain away from mexico-- thankyou so much . we here cruising these waters prefer to not experience your drama.
thankyou for remaining away.

Re: I Told Everyone to Avoid Mexico. Here we go...

OK, a little on the specifics please. Which ports in Mexico are we talking about? To what extent does this apply to Baja? Is it only on the western coast?

what are you asking????

the country known as mexico has new laws fo r your boat. this is for ALL OF MEXICO.
you NEED to have:
PASSPORT
BOAT OWNERSHIP PAPERS
INSURANCE --liability with a company having feet in mexico
VISA
TIP for mothership
TIP for sport boat, aka dinghy with large enough outboard to plane it.
(rowboats need not have tip, however, SAIL, ELECTRIC and OUTBOARD ENGINE PROPELLED DINGHIES ar econsidered sportboats, as are jet skis and some other goodies. research t i p and see for yourself.

with these papers in hand you willbe fine.

YES!! ALL OF MEXICO---BOTH COASTS.

Re: I Told Everyone to Avoid Mexico. Here we go...

No, I meant in which ports have the impounds been ocurring? I am aware that the law applies to all of Mexico and that this can happen in any port in Mexico. I am just wondering if the enforcement of the law has been targeted to certain areas. Thanks.

Re: I Told Everyone to Avoid Mexico. Here we go...

it occurred only one time, and will probably not occur again.
keep your paperwork good and current and you will be fine.
the necessary papers have been itemized above.
