Re: Making a Ship's Stamp

Here is a site that allows you to make your own seal online (and order it if you want).

It only has two sailboat designs, however, you can customize otherwise.

If your attitude resembles the south end of a bull heading north, it's time to turn around.

Re: Making a Ship's Stamp

Any reasonably well known stamp shop on a coastal town where ships regularly call should have a menu of ships stamps and embossing clamps. We had ours done in San Diego... easy, quick, cheap and choice of ink colors. The time to use them is at the time the entry documents are being processed by the local immigrations and customs officials. They stamp a set and sign then you stamp the same set and sign. Ships name, hailing port, doc #and place to sign are the important pieces of info... everything else is nice but not critical. I agree with the other poster who mentioned attitude is important... be pleasant for goodness sake. I might add to dress appropriately when dealing with officials in foreign countries. I can't tell you the number of times I went to the front of the line because I was wearing clean clothes, my Captains cover and shoulder bars while a bunch of Capt Ron look alikes sat waiting. Cheers, Capt Phil

Re: Making a Ship's Stamp

In many places, a ship's stamp will allow you to purchase items duty free.
