Re: [Amel] SSB instalation

The ICOM 802 is not approved for use in the EU

AND, if you buy one from the US, it will be transmit locked to the FCC approved channels.

There is a way to reprogram an 802 so that all channels are xmit programmable....you need this if you want to use PACTOR on all available freqs.

I can post this document of anyone is interested...

AT-130 can work with 802 also no problem even tho AT-140 is recommended.

710 / 802 pull about 25-30Amps on xmit @12V..so for a 24V system you need a converter that's min 350W

sm2k redlines have a BLU converter already fitted that can deal with that..Amel 54..dunno...amel@amel.fr may be the best bet...

Hi there is no issue in getting you 802 shipped from Defender Industries. Most users use the 140 tuner they work great. Buy the SSB ant at the same time. You will of course need shielded cable and copper foil and a 24 to 12 volt inverter. The 802 only runs on 12 volts. And remember it pull 160 watts every time you transmit. Good luck are you getting the Pactor modem too.

Radar Arch

seafeverofcuan <seafeverofcuan@...>
 

Some time ago there was a posting regarding a radar arch made by Teck Inox of La Rochelle and possibly supplied through Secteur Blanc. It included a dinghy lifting arm, solar panels and two D400 wind generators. Would anyone have any details or photographs
please?
Thank you.

Hi Lior,
why do you want to get ICOM M802 from the US if you are in Europe? You can
get it everywhere: only an example
http://www.nauticom.fr/store/product_info.php?n=Emetteur_R_cepteur_BLU_IC_M8
02_ASN&products_id=1438&language=en
If your boat has not an European flag, you can get rid of the VAT, I guess.

Gary,

We were not there very long and had a berth at Coral Cove Marina with two other Amels. Crew's Inn Marina is across from Coral Cove and is more up-scale. Trinidad waters are filthy. I noticed that Crews Inn staff cleaned the garbage from the marina daily...Coral Cove did not bother. If I were going again, I think I would pay a little more at Crew's Inn. They book up well in advance...book early. When you arrive, be sure to meet Jessie James, the go-to guy and taxi driver for yachties. Jessie's website: http://www.membersonlymaxitaxi.com/

Re: [Amel] US entry

seafeverofcuan <seafeverofcuan@...>
 

Dear Alessandro,
The crew of a private aircraft or boat can not enter United States territory without having first obtained a B1/2 visa while outside the United States.
Twice I have been crew on on sailing vessels one American and one British that stopped at St Johns USVI.
On the first occasion no one on board understood the need for a visa and I was "deported" there and then in the clothes I stood in to Sopers Hole Tortola where I was interviewed put back on a commercial ferry to St Johns and the US immigration accepted my immigration status because I had arrived on commercial, not private transport and they issued me a ninety day green visa waiver card.
Two years later I was on a delivery trip and the owner wanted to stop at St Johns to take on water and food . Due to my previous experience I refused to leave the boat. The owner went ashore and declared my presence to immigration. I was summoned to report immediately to their office where my green waiver was destroyed and I was again deported.
On arrival by ferry, again immigration issued me a two week waiver and the delivery trip had to be cancelled as a result.
A little known fact is that the immigration officer who receives you into America or Canada has the discretion to either accept or reject you on the spot and if arriving by commercial transport they have the authority to issue a visa waiver for a time period of their choosing up to ninety days.
It is also very important to note when on a private sailing vessel the master is required to visit immigration and customs immediately upon arrival regardless of time and weather conditions once in a port within United States territory.
I have always found both these agencies to courteous and efficient but they have iron rod discipline and anyone who wants to step outside their clearly define guidelines will have a very unhappy experience.
The bottom line is that your friends will not be allowed entry until they have the visas, they normally can be issued within two weeks of application.They also must make themselves available for a mandatory interview by local embassy staff in the country of application.
If needless expense and inconvenience is caused by you or your crew by arriving into the United States without the correct visas the authorities will seek redress from you.
I hope you find this helpful.
Kind regards,
Trevor Lusty

Re: US entry

Judy and Bill aboard SV BeBe <yahoogroups@...>
 

Allesandro,

I am 99% sure that your friends from St. Martin will be deported unless they have a US or Canadian passport...and you will be financially responsible for their transportation back to their country.

Check out Noonsite.com for summaries of the formalities at http://www.noonsite.com/Countries/USA?rc=Formalities

Since the USVI and Puerto Rico are US territories, entry requirements for non-US citzens are as for the US...and you may have the same problem with your guests there. Check Noonsite at http://www.noonsite.com/Countries/PuertoRico?rc=Formalities
AND
http://www.noonsite.com/Countries/USVirginIslands?rc=Formalities

When arriving in the US, you will be asked if you visited Cuba. If you have visited Cuba, you may be asked to leave the US immediately.

Regarding your boat, you will need to show proof of ownership and registration.

Be sure to read all of the information including the cruising permit at http://www.noonsite.com/Countries/USA?rc=Formalities

Hope this helps.

Re: [Amel] US entry

Alexandre Uster von Baar
 

Good morning Alessandro
 
My experience is limited to the US states, as far as know when you enter the US by boat, you need a Visa (b1/b2) for all people on board. 
So if your friends are entering with you on the boat, they need a visa - if they fly to the US then go on the boat, I assume this "should" be ok (if controlled by coast guard).
 
For the boat, I don't know about the US Virgin Island, but for the states (Florida, etc.) the boat needs a "Cruising permit", mine was free.  Make sure you, every time you leave, then enter a port (Miami, Ft Lauderdale, etc), that you contact the coast guard.  Some places are stricter than some other, I understood in Fort Myer, you need to clear with custom even if you change marina...  I obtain my cruising permit in Key West, we just cleared out when we left (over the radio or phone), then cleared in arriving in Galveston, first over the radio (couldn't reach them), so at fuel dock called them, they were happy.
