Hailing port on stern question

My Cal 29 is only registered in FL - it's not documented - are there any restrictions as far as hailing port I can put on the stern?

Nope, you can use Underhill, Middle Earth if you want.

Well, actually, you can't. Your hailing port has to be a real location in the United States. On the other hand, it can be ANY location. Doesn't matter if you have ever been there, if the boat has ever been there, if you ever intend to go there, or anything else.

For those interested, it is CFR 67.119, paragraph (b) that says, "The hailing port must be a place in the United States included in the U.S. Department of Commerce's Federal Information Processing Standards Publication 55DC." The twist here is that I have never been able to find a current copy of publication 55DC.

It's not a documented boat, doesn't apply.

This is correct. Denver's citation only applies when you have applied for a Certificate of Documentation from the USCG. The federal regulations do not apply to state registrations. However, I don't know if Florida has any state rules on hailing port designations. Here in Connecticut, there are none; you can put down whatever you want or nothing at all. It's fairly common here for folks to list their landlocked hometown as their hailing port. I think that looks lame; the hailing port of my boat is where I keep her docked. But to each his own...

Re: Hailing port on stern question

My boat is documented and is Florida registered. It still says Portsmouth NH on the stern. I donít rememember it even coming up with I got the Florida registration. I bet a quick FL check on their site gives the answer to the question and is a safer bet than trusty SN responses

Don't blow air up my rear, be useful and blow it at the sails!

Do you have to register in Florida even if you are USCG documented? That's not the case in California. BTW- I, too, chose the marina I'm docked as her hailing port, rather than the suburb in which I reside....

I sailed a boat in the Bahamas with folks from New Orleans that hailed from Las Vegas.

The owners had no affiliation with Nevada I think it was simply a tax dodge.

Search the board for threads on this. The net is you'll need to do enough of the registration that the state gets a use tax if due...
