Thanks for all of you for your suggestions and opinion. Based on these suggestions I have contacted US Customs
and also did detailed search for all possible means.
Yes, there are two different way to handle my problem. Both were actually suggested by some of you.
The first is to get a cruising permit by US Customs
. The officer I was talking to was really helpful in this matter.
The second is to register my boat in one of the US States (not federally) Foreign owned and foreign registered boats can be state registered without problem. This is either a yearly or biannual process but while registered you can cruise
the USA anywhere.
I have opted to register my boat in Rhode Island
, since the boat is actually there and will be launched in the same state.
requires a few documents but when you have them you can mail it along with a registration
form and a check. I have already mailed all of it and the time to get back the registration document and a decal is about 3-4 weeks.
Thank you again for all your help, fair winds
