Re: Clearing In / Out

"Latin American countries want the captain (male typically) to be in long pants "
No doubt the sight of a Scot in a proper kilt with claythmore would strike fear in their hearts and sending them running back inland.

Re: Clearing In / Out

We pulled into Marsh Harbour Marina. The manager called Customs, and within 20 minutes the agents came over to the marina with all the forms. We sat at a table in the bar, filled them out, paid the fee and were done. The marina got $25 for their trouble.

Re: Clearing In / Out

Ive Cruised pretty much the whole world either working or just Cruiseing, Ive never been in a country yet that wanted anyone but the captain coming ashore to do the paper work ! as some have said someplaces will fine ya if anyone but the Capt steps ashore before entrance has been granted !! Remember your a GUEST there IF they let ya in ! they can refuse ya know !! A big smile and as much politeness as you can use is the trick and if the langage is not english a little homework in thier langage is a big help it shows some respect to them that you would even try !! at least thats what has worked for me ! along with clean kakies and My Capns Hat LOL

Re: Clearing In / Out

Yargh, Gord me bucko!

Is there a polite Bahamian way of saying "Gazelle in the park, old man."

From their web site:

"Attachments:
...2. Maritime Declaratio of Health [doubtlessly a Spanish document]
Instructions:
1.... Details of any firmarm and [a Woody Allen "gub" joke? Or Hulk Hogan fans?]

"
Aye sir, there be many firm arms on me boat!

Re: Clearing In / Out

OK, all the womenfolk will please leave the room right now, this message is not intended for your eyes.

"Gazelle in the park" is a way that one British gentleman would inform another British gentlemen at a dinner party, that there was some food in his beard. If anyone at the table overhead it during the chatter of a dinner table, it would easily be instantly recognized, or totally unintelligble, usually the latter, especially to the ladies.

Somewhat akin to the cruder Americanism "You'r losing altitude" when someon's fly isn't quite zipped.


See now, Scots in kilts never have THAT problem.

Hmm. I'm the official OWNER of the boat, cause my husband isn't an American citizen. But my husband is MUCH more patient than I, and can hold his tongue, so we usually have him be captain and do the clear in/out thing. The countries we have been to seemed okay with this.
