Re: Uscg docs\state docs
I think it's more correctly stated that a National form of registration is technically required for international travel. If one is going to third world countries, everything is a crap shoot. Not only do their rules vary, the enforcement varies. One's experience one day, could be entirely different the next. The Bahamas were famous for making up the rules and, more particularly, the fees, when immigrating years back. While I could tell that corruption caused some of that, I truly believed that the person I was dealing with on an out island, often didn't know the right rules and just made them up.
The form that is guaranteed to be acceptable is to document with the USCG. If you want to limit yourself to where someone told you they got away with a state reg and have to wonder if it will work for you too, by the time you get there, that's the skippers call.
