Does anybody know the current status of documenting a Canadian hull as a charterboat? (Coastwise trade - uninspected no more than 6 passengers) This is all part of the Jones Act. I know years ago you could not do it. Then I heard it could be done for a fee and would have to be approved by Congress and would be time consuming. I am just wondering if anything has changed. I have seen some boats state registered chartering but I do not really know if this is legal. It seems they are well over 5 net tons.
