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

We have travelled down as far as Grenada and have never been asked for anything more than the USCG registration and passports. I would bring a fistful of good color photo copies of the registration. Some places don’t have copiers, in the DR pencils and carbon paper seem precious. We have never been approached for a bribe.

My guess is it would be good to have USCG registration as that is most common. The rare official is suspicious and/or unsure of messing with his good government job. Make it as normal as possible to avoid mishaps.
