    FMM is for real..Not just sport boats. We got checked at the islands today and were sent packing after we failed to produce our fmm.

    One important detail would be whether the Navy is satisfied with just the vessel's master having an FMM, which is what I was told by a Mexican official.

    I sincerely hope that I am wrong, but it is my understanding that the Mexican Navy has also sent home boaters who do have a VHF radio license and the captain a VHF radio operator permit. Looking at the US Federal Regs they are clear about that too. US registered boats operating in foreign water are required to have those licenses. Hoping we can get an easier process in place.

    Just across the boarder (San Ysidro) you can get it in 10 minutes for about $25.

    "Just across the boarder (San Ysidro) you can get it in 10 minutes for about $25."

    With a marine stamped FMM entry by sea (not land based) that will be accepted by the Mexican Navy?

    Just check the "by sea" box. No problem.

    It's not a problem for the individual to check the "by sea" box. But is San Ysidro going to marine stamp like Ensenada? More importantly, is the Mexican Navy going to accept it?

    Is San Ysidro the only place to get them? I heard they are only good for 3 days? do all fishermen on a PB have to have them?

    I believe San Ysidro is the only California crossing where they are available. There is a short term (maybe 3 days, but I believe it is 7) FMM available for free, but the 180 day version is only about $25.

    Safest for all persons on a PB to have an FMM, but I was told by a reliable source, and confirmed by the person who issues the FMM's, that for private boats (but not commercial boats) not making land (but fishing within 12nm of mainland) only the owner/captain/master of the vessel must have an FMM. Whether the Navy interprets the rules the same way, who knows. Same thing as to whether it matters to have the FMM stamped in Ensenada for boat entry. Personally, I doubt that it makes any difference, but in some cases (the TIP fiasco, for example) the Mexican rules are very abruptly applied very literally and very strictly. There is definitely a crap shoot aspect to it.

    So when going through the banjercito.com website to get you FMM, it ask what Flag/Banner and Nationality. I has a few choices, but no choice for USA. You cannot fill this section in on your own and it is a required field. Can anyone who has used this site give any insight?
    Thanks
