Question Yacht stamp

I have to make an official yacht stamp as our cruise will start shortly.
I believe I need the following on this stamp:

S/V Name
Reg number
MMSI number

What else??

Re: Yacht stamp

You don't "need" to have anything in particular on the stamp. There is no "official" specification or requirement to have one.

But I would add the Hailing Port to your list.

Re: Yacht stamp

Your stamp should have

Ship's name
Home Port aka Port of registry
Official number
( I would stick in your MMSI hereabouts as they are starting to ask for that ... so its handy to have it handy..)
Gross Tonnage
Net Tonnage ( not applicable to yachts )

Re: Yacht stamp

Some third-world officials affect a stamp with a place to initial or sign, so it looks extra-snazzy. I vote for an embosser as well. Maybe times are changing, but I still have South American documents with bits of red ribbon attached to the bottom. Oh, and a shiny gold or silver colored round embossed sticker is a big hit. You could invent a nice escutcheon to have on the stickers--a penguin rampant on an ice floe argent with the Southern Cross sinister (I think that means "to the left").
Sorry if I've drifted...

Yes means left - Left handed people were once thought to be children of the devil - hence sinister became a "Spooky" thing.

I'd recommend Phil Johnson's Yacht Stamp. He runs a small cottage industry from his boat making them in many styles. YachtStamp.com

Re: Yacht stamp

Ours has the boat name and the home port round the perimeter, and a decorative element in the center.

Cheers,

Is that because you haven't had any need for a boat stamp.
I've used ours a number of times to enhance the authority of crew letters for immigration and to get boat parts out of customs jail.

I was going to ask what people were using yacht stamps for and would love to hear from others. Also boat cards were mentioned and who uses them and for what?

When you cruise you meet hundreds of different people and boats. Remembering names is tough. Boat cards make it simple.

I'm just interested in hearing how many use what and why. We have our own opinions and have heard opinions on boat cards on other sites, although not on boat stamps.

Then there were eboatcards which the community was roundly rebuked by the owner of Active Captain as idiots because they didn't buy in to that concept.
