Re: Renters usage of handheld VHF/DSC
How often do you charter and where?
If you must, get an international MMSI for your portable radio, not the boat. I'm not certain, but I suspect most charter boats don't have an MMSI anyway. I've never come across the info on one.
The international MMSI numbers will cost you. Boat US are free, but limited to the USA. You also require a Restricted Radio Operators license, which also costs a few bucks, but is good for a lifetime. You just need to keep your address current.

In the harsh marine environment, something is always in need of repair. Margaritas fix everything.
