Re: Darwin to philippines (indonesia)
There are no hard and fast rules for what is on a boat stamp. We got one made in Staples from a file done on the computer. It is circular, has a drawing of the boat in the middle and the name, hailing port and country, and official number around the outside. It is self-inking which is nice.
In the countries that care, Indonesia being the buggy, but I seem to remember that Vanuatu and South Africa were pleased we could stamp documents, they don't really care what is on the stamp. It is more that you can stamp it since it makes it look official.
After the refit we have decided to sell Ainia. We want something smaller that would be could for the light summer winds of Lake Ontario, although we plan to spend at least a couple of winters in the Caribbean before heading north.
