Re: LLC or Corporate ownership of vessel


I found the Montenegro official to be the "strictest and by-the-book" official out of 53 countries. He insisted on proof of competency, insurance, passports, crew list, registration, and yes, a corporate resolution to operate the vessel. I am surprised that he didn't require the corporate seal on the resolution. That said, I saw an American give him a NJ driver's license, insisting that in NJ the drivers license covers boats. BTW, Montenegro is not the only place that will require a corporate resolution and most will require the corporate seal, and possible notarization. And that official had a 30-day insurance policy to sell you if you arrived without a current insurance policy (helpful or conflicted).

Sometimes how an official acts has nothing to do with you and everything to do with the person he saw before you that decides to tell the official how his country and he should operate. This is compounded when the official associates you with the previous person because you both spoke the same language.

Only issue in the last 30+ countries was in Montenegro. They refused entry unless we had a letter from the LLC giving me permission to operate the vessel.

We wrote one and they didn't get their bribe.
