~5 years ago I sailed a corporate owned vessel to Mexico
and back to America.
~13 years ago I sailed a vessel through Mexico
, French Polynesia
, Cook Islands
when my brother owned it (we were going to use it together, but he never joined me). It officially became my boat in Singapore
In neither case was I ever asked for additional documentation
. The officials either didn't notice or care that I was not the owner.
Here in the Caribbean
I've seen a box to tick on some clearance forms if the vessel is owned by a corporation. I don't know if that triggers any different treatment.
In both cases I carried multiple copies of a Letter of Authorization that said I could do anything I wanted with the vessel, printed on fine security
paper with gold stickers, embossed stamps, and etc. They looked very nice.
Please write back here if you have any problems-- I am curious. The only reason we haven't put our boat in ours is that it's not worth very much and we are too young to die.
