I would like to provide potential crew with a statement of the rules for international voyaging on my boat. I do not want it to be a treatise of legalese with no other purpose than bum-covering. Rather, I would like it to detail, in simple terms, the expectations and responsibilities of both skipper and crew.

I know some of our members choose to rely on instinct rather than a charter, but I am hoping that submissions from our members can eventually be distilled into a working set of Articles which can provide a base document which all of our members, both crew and owners, can utilise.

In a separate post Southpacific provides this excellent point: "No unopened packages or third party deliveries are permitted on board".

I add: "No illicit substances are permitted onboard. The skipper must be advised of any patent or prescription medicines brought aboard. Prescription medicines must be accompanied by a valid script".

"Any and all use of the ship's medicine chest should be reported to the skipper".

Further suggested categories: Costs, safety, weapons, cultural considerations, immigration documentation/visas etc., duties, dispute resolution, illegal activity.

Cheers

David.

Auzzee,

The first post by Catamount on this thread has a useful list of some issues you might want to cover.

May be useful to cover both legal liability and expectations of roles and responsibilities.

David,

That one could be a potential problem. In some countries, when the last of the medication has been dispensed, the pharmacy retains the prescription. They do this to stop any frautulant use of it later on reasoning that if you have received what the doctor ordained then you have no further need of the "script".

I suppose one could always make a photocopy of the prescription prior to presenting it to the pharmacy.

Aye

Stephen

Take a peep at this link http://www.winpipe.ca/shipsarticles.htm . This vessel's skipper has a very healthy attitude to the onboard 'going's-on' on his Beneteau 36. I particularly draw your attention to article #6

6) "Drinking to become intoxicated is permitted under the law while in port or at anchor.

While under way, consumption of alcoholic beverages is an offense & therefore steps must be taken to ensure that the authorities do not catch us".

I wonder if his ancestry is Ozzie.

David.

The former workboat, now megayacht named in his honour is one of my favourite ships of all time

Now...back to articles....perhaps the one about losing a limb can be dropped.......and, I enjoy a bit of music on a Sunday.
