船籍をどこで取得するか、経験のある方々に聞いてみたところ、米国のデラウェアやマレーシアのランカウィなどが比較的取得しやすいとのこと。AIS搭載義務のある海域航海に備え、海上移動業務識別コード (MMSI: Maritime Mobile Service Identity) の取得も目指した。問題は長年のセブでの係留で、船籍登録書類全てが無くなっていた事。
Where shall the Isana be registered ? Some yachtmen tought me that it might be easy to get it at Delaware in USA or at Langkawi in Malaysia. MMSI is also needed for sailing in AIS required area. The problem at that time was the original documents of ship registry were missing during long mooring at Cebu Yacht Club.
After July 2020, the contact with the agent of Langkawi ship registry has been lost due to COVID-19 pandemic. At the beginning of 2023, the contact was resumed and MMSI License was secured, so AIS radio now avail.
