Why does anyone need to know they are the owners? Your owner sounds very naive, surly he has a maritime attorney that can advise him on such matters. Dockwalk is not the place to get this type of advice.

Not very smart to post your name, type of boat, location and advertise that you are trying to circumvent immigration law. You are obviously proficient in using a computer. Google the Marshall Islands Yacht Registry and get the info there for seaman's books.

Hello Paul. Feel free to contact us. +1-954-596-2728 or survey(at) We are flag-state inspectors for the Marshall Islands. Our local surveyor in Papeete can assist you in obtaining MI-issued license CECs and seaman's books, if the need is legitimate. It is not recommended that you obtain these identity documents solely to avoid immigration rules. Legal counsel is definitely recommended.

The people you need to talk to are Tahiti-ocean, the local yacht agent. They know the business better than anyone and will be able to help out. They will sort out all your immigration issues and take care of the Vessel bond for you. My advice is DON'T mess with the French, otherwise you will be enjoying tahiti from the inside of a concrete cell. The customs do random checks and board the vessels at sea so don't try and cheat the system! Society Islands and the Tuamotos are a magnificent cruising location so ENJOY
