American Charter regulations question.
Can't seem to find the answer, but I heard that in order to operate a charter sailboat in the US (or maybe it was just CA) the hull needed to be laid up in America. Any truth in this? Thanks in advance.
Jones Act - and answer typically was NO but recently an amendment was made and this is the exception for using foreign built vessels as charters...There are some basic requirements for a vessel to qualify for a waiver under this program:
BASIC ELIGIBILITY REQUIREMENTS
Once a waiver is received, the applicant should file for a Coastwise Trade Endorsement for the passenger trade with the U.S. Coast Guard (USCG).

Thanks Jody! Good news!
