Has Anyone Ever Married Aboard ?

Got married on board their boat or indeed married at sea?

Much as I would love to marry on a virgin white sandy beach, on board a galleon would be just as romantic. Just as long as Capt Ron isnt conducting the proceedings.

I performed a marriage ceremony ( with a friend in attendance that was also a Judge) for a couple that were friends. They asked me to marry them on their boat, since I was a licenensed captain. It took place at a dock, with the wedding party on the boat, and onlookers on the dock. A great time and very fond memories.

apparently the ability of a sailboat captain to perform this ceremony is dependent on the laws of the country where the vessel is registered.

Hello everyone,
First-time poster/longtime lurker...
Had a Co-worker get married in Key West harbor on the last WWII PT boat still available for charter. Released white doves during the ceremony and I hired a local biplane pilot to do a fly-over towing a banner.

On a Schooner...

Married in 1983 by the ship's Captain on a schooner in Seattle. Unfortunately it WAS a legal marriage which cost me a lot of money 16 years later when I divorced!!
