First Voyage, the Legal Side?

Im planning my first voyage on my own, and i do not know any1 with experience with the legal side of everything. My desination is Belize, my boat is a Cat22, and my goal is to be at the Mayan temples in Dec this year. I know i need a passport, but i do not know all a need to do for customs and what not. i was thinking of docking in Belize City, is that a good port to dock at and check immigration? dp i need to go in on a quarantine flag right, and radio to be checked in or something? I have never left the country before so i just want to make sure to do it right. any info or experience is appreciated.

Re: First Voyage, the Legal Side?

You don't want to go to Belize City. Cucumber Beach Marina is a little south of the city. I would suggest you get Raucher's Guide. A Catalina 22 will definitely be an adventure. You need to make absolutely sure the rigging is solid and perhaps oversized. The boat will see more stress on that trip than it has in it's entire lifetime so far. Chuck
