I just brought my new to me FP Bahia 46 home. I suspect its not totally up to USCG code. Since I am berthed within sight of the CG base, I figured it would be a good idea to get "up to code". I am having difficulty in finding a nice one stop website that is put together simply for a simple person like me. Any suggestions? Thanks in advance
I may not be as good as I used to be, but I am as good once as I ever was
Reqmts are pretty simple, there are usually hand out flyers. Or contact the local Power Squardron USCG auxiliary, they will inpsect your boat and tell you what you need..... they do not disclose the results...
Location: St. Augustine, FL - an unwilling C.L.O.D.
Boat: Maine Cat 41
In addition, check with your state boating organization and make sure you are carrying the proper items in your dinghy (life preservers, horn, lights, etc). In most cases, they will match the USCG, but in some states the state reqs are more stringent.
Make sure to get a second bill of sale for the Dinghy. You won't belive the hassle registering a dinghy can be. You worry about the boat and then go through more paperwork than you can imagine on the dinghy. Its a different boat is the way to look atv it.
