Numa boa, não vai ser fácil legalizar seu barco no Brasil quando você chegar, mesmo com seu irmão no governo. Isso involve a marinha e também a Receita Federal. Fora isso, é ilegal. O país inteiro está lutando para acabar com a corrupção no governo e você quer "dar um jeito" com seu veleiro... triste.
Nao se preoculpe nao e minha intecao de registrar o Barco por la so vou ficar no mais de 6 meses e continuar viajando pois quero terminar minha vida no mar o barco esta registrado no Texas so quero aprender as dificuldades de atravessar duas ves o Atlantico pelo que vi ate agora e a melhor e mais segura opcao Obrigao pela sua informacao
quanto a corrupcao vem desde Perovaz decaminha comessou por ele e nunca vai terminar nao importa o que queremos e a cultura da humanidade nao importa em que pais vivemos sempre vai haver corrupcao.
Desculpe pelo meu Portugues nao esta muinto bom nao pois vivo na America por 39 Anos

If you don't think you have enough experience, try to get someone with experience to join you for the trip.

Just curious... What are you going to do with the boat in Brazil after you arrive? Have you checked the regulations concerning how long the boat can stay in Brazil?
I Have Brothers live in North of Brazil I will stay about 6 month in there after that my next trip will be to the pacific

Re: Planing Sail to Brazil

There is another way but it’s time consuming. Look up Bruce Van Sant’s “Thornless Path”. It can be done but you can wait weeks, even months waiting for weather windows.

Seriously man, we have provided all the information already... let us know which part you did not understand.
