Re: Regulations

Best part of off shore cruising is there are very few if any "regulations". For a country by country update on visa's, entrance info check out: noonsite.com

Re: Regulations

Try the COLREGS, available online for free but also required to be carried on many vessels. In Florida you'll get the US/USCG version but they are the international (and inland) collision prevention regulations. With some variation in different places that's about as international as it gets.

Re: Regulations

Well, the only international regulations are the ones agreed on by treaty (MARPOL, COLREGS, SOLAS) and even then only if your flag state (country) is signatory to them, in which case they've made local laws to implement the intl treaties.

Meaning, in the US or on the high seas, look to US requirements, like this:

Required Equipment for Recreational Boats - BoatSafe.com

When you get to the Bahamas (or wherever), their laws apply.

Actually you aren't required to have a VHF radio (or a compass or an anchor) if you look at the attached list. But you should have them.

Don't know if this answers your question but maybe it does?
