MMSI into Icom IC-M504

Hi all,

I'm confused, which at my age doesn't take much, about entering my MMSI into my VHF. Our boat came with the radio, therefore, I don't know how many different MMSI numbers have been added. The manual says that, "This code programming can be performed only twice." After that it can be changed only by a dealer or distributor. So if I have entered a MMSI issued by BoatUS and then get one issued by the feds if we decide to sail out of the country does that mean I could be hung up for a period of time if for instance we are in the USVI?
Any opinions and/or advice?????
