This post is largely in response to this post:

http://www.bdoutdoors.com/forums/inshore-islands-fishing-reports-southern-california/322927-mexican-navy-nados-fishing-report.html

Hopefully we can get some clear answers here. I will forward the questions to my friends at the Mex board of Tourism and get them answered directly from the horses mouth.....to the best of my ability.

Rules:

If you have a legitimate question, write it here.

Do not ask a question that someone else has already asked....that just makes the thread longer than it needs to be and shows that you are very self-centered :)

No bullshit and don't begin a discussion on this thread....I don't want to dig thru pages of BS to find questions.

If this even starts to go the wrong way it will be shut down and no one wins.

Thanks...have a nice day.

1.) passports or passport cards, are they required to fish in Mexican waters? regardless of private boat or on a cattle boat?

2.) Do you have to have a name on your boat if there is no name listed on boat registration? or are CF numbers sufficient?

Please read the questions that are asked before yours.....Do not ask the same question twice...it takes me twice as long to read the thread.

Does the size of the letters of the name of the boat have to be a certain size?

Well since we're asking questions about Mexican laws on the water and such, and since we recently discussed how they may be more prone now to enforcing rules that in the past they didn't, here is a good one to find an answer to.

Does Mexico require us to have a VHF license on all boats that have or are using a VHF in Mexican waters??

This subject came up years ago in great detail, although all I could find right now was this little bit posted by Kerncat

In addition to the Mexican permits for everyone on board...I don't know how "technical" the Mexicans want to get but the law states that if you have a vhf radio on board and are in Mexican waters you need a vhf radio station license and a personal vhf radiotelephone operators license..neither of these is required for pleasure boaters in the US but if you go into foreign waters, you are supposed to have them (even though they are technically a US permit/license)..I'd bet that very few P/Br's have a station or a personal license..like I said, it's all in how technical folks want to get..maybe someone else can weigh in on this one..the station license is for something like 5 years and does cost...the personal permit is free as I recall...


There was a whole thread some months back on this subject among other threads that touched on it.

What is the size requirement of a boat as far as having the name of the port on it?
IE a 14' trailer boat has to have the port painted on it?????

Does parent A require a notarized release form from parent B to take a minor child into Mexican waters similar to crossing the border?

I am fairly sure I know the answer to this, but just in case.....

Is a flare gun considered an acceptable means for a flare launcher or must it be only hand held flares to fall within the law??

What causes a boat to be boarded? Is there anything specific that makes one a target or is it the luck of the draw?

Are they allowed to perform a cursory search or pat down of the person? If yes, what about female passengers, do they send out a female Navy personnel for the shake down?

Way to fuck it up for those that actually wanted info.
