TRANS­FER­RING A MMSI

SAIL - - Under Sail -

Q: I just pur­chased a used 54ft Jean­neau that was re­cently out­fit­ted by the pre­vi­ous owner with the lat­est in ma­rine elec­tron­ics. All ra­dio gear has the pre­vi­ous owner’s MMSI num­ber en­tered into its mem­ory. I am told it is a ma­jor job to pull the equip­ment and have a new MMSI num­ber pro­grammed. This means two VHFs, the ma­rine SSB and an AIS transpon­der all need to be re­pro­grammed. Un­be­liev­able! An ex­pen­sive up­date, right? Don Hamil­ton, Galve­ston, TX
