AMSA Rego Naming Plate

Post by teamROAM »

Hi

Can anyone let me know how they did their naming plate to meet AMSA rego?

Pic would be great. PM me and I'll give you my email if you want.

Much appreciated

Not sure if this helps. Up till 4 years ago:
> There was no requirement for a 'Builders Plate' (as opposed to a 'Naming Plate') for amateur boatbuilders, as long as its not used in Survey.
> AMSA only require registration when over 24m in length, and when used for reward. Or if you 'choose to' register with them.

That's the one I eventually found in the countless volumes of BS, so I went with it.

Thanks for the input gents. I'm already well through the process so will finish off.

I was told by a well traveled sailor that it was required so just went ahead.
For clarity for others reading to close the thread is it your understanding that what you said above is true for international cruising as well?

My understanding is that you will require registration if you intend to take the boat overseas.

It makes sense otherwise you will be hit with Import Duty and GST when you return to Australia as an overseas vessel. The powers that be don't know you built the boat in Oz and registration proves that the vessel you took out of the country is the same as the one you are bringing back.

For international travel, its my understanding that registration is mandatory.

You do need AMSA rego for overseas travel. They have requirements for the size and even the font for your boat's name on the hull sides and transom. They also have requirements for your boat's anme plate internally. But we used a different (but clearly legible) font, and don't yet have the name plate fitted inside, and it was no problem either clearing into or out of Aus.

It seemed very few recreational boats met the regs for font (100mm sans serif IIRC) on our travels.
