Re: Cruising from US to Bahamas and south Boat Documents needed?

We are doing just this right now. What we have is the CG bill of sale, the current boat document with the previous owners names on it, and a notarized letter from the previous owners stating that we have their authority to operate the boat (even though it is our boat now).

So far from Antigua, to St. Thomas, to the Bahamas, we have gone into customs/immigration and handed them the boat documentation only - no bill of sale or owner letter - and have been checked in with no questions asked. We fill out all forms with our names as owners of the boat. Strange because our names are not on the documentation, but that's the way it has been going so far.

YMMV.
