communicate with friends on a schooner i know in mexico-- schooner patricia belle.
owner used to charter
out of mazatlan. there are many laws and many blockades to noncitizens having charter business in mexico.
you MUST speak with officials and get permission and proper visa and operator licensing first before you charter in mexico. those with unregistered charters are ratted out by th emexicans who perceive income lost
as you take their business away from em.
there are ways to use locals as captains ..that would make it easier for you to obtain licensing, but the process takes many years, it was 4 yrs in mexico before capt pat was able to use patricia belle for charters in mazatlan -- he did sunset cruises and cruises in mazatlan.
you ARE allowed to take friends on private cruises, but not to charter officially until all requirements areemet. good luck to ye.
there is a us citizen doing charters in sayulita on a trimaran
.. he has mexican captains.
