Re: More registration problems

I had read the post about Italian boats after I paid my deposit! actually it was very straightforward and only took time because there was a lease company involved. Once all the signatures were in place it took about 3 weeks.
As a non resident of Panama vessel apparently need to be in a corporate name and you would have the additional cost of keeping the corporation valid .

The state registration is not an option as I intend to use the boat outside of the US and the Bahamas .
Think I will take lake effects advice and try the US SSR part 1. I also think boatman was correct re the credit card.
The main issue is no standardization of requirements , in the US you must be citizen, but the UK does not care about citizenship just residency. So both the logical places to do it disqualify me. They are both more than happy to collect Taxes though.

Anyway boat is on the hard at Shelter Bay Marina and likely to be there a few more months so I have time to figure it out.
Thanks for the advice

Paul

Not being pedantic - just to help not (further?!) confuse readers, I think that should read UK SSR Part III (the cheap & easy option!).

IIRC the problem (with Italian Registration) on that other thread was that their were multiple registered owners, and some of them were dead! (and that "minor detail" was dropped into the deal at the last moment - that gonna be a PITA / expensive / time consuming in any country!).......in any event, no doubt the Italian Boat Registration system is used by thousands of Italians every year without diffuculy - so it can't be that hard .

Re: More registration problems

It is probably not ideal, but I suspect the UK SSR would be fine in the Caribbean where a lot of places you'll be dealing with someone with a limited command of English anyway! As long as it looks official and is something they have seen before you will probably be OK as long as your name matches the name of the document. I prefer to have my name and address be the same on all these important documents, but in reality most officials judge you by the "cut of your jib" and don't get into reading carefully every detail of your papers. The places where they might look at you cross-eyed would be within the EU or in New Zealand or Australia--someplace where the authorities are very likely to know what exactly the SSR means.

The only thing the SSR has is your name and the boat details...
no address or anything else to do with you...
