International Waters...
    #9297409 - 11/23/08 03:36 PM (12 years, 3 months ago)

I was browsing on another forum, and ran across this post. It sparked my curiosity, so I thought i'd ask here.

Quote:

A friend of mine asked me an interesting question, what if you renounce your citizenship and head out to international waters in a big sailboat or something and decide to live in international waters for the rest of your life? Who's jurisdiction would you be under? What country would you answer to if you remained in international waters, if any? If you comitted some sort of crime out there(for instance, lets say you decided to have two wives out there, which is considered illegal in most other countries), who would you answer to? Would you be considered an illegal alien in every country on the face of the earth and be relegated to roaming the seas for the rest of your life? Some interesting questions, and I could not answer them all.




Thoughts?

You would be under the jurisdiction of the country where your boat was registered.

I think that pretty much sums it up. You are under jurisdiction of whatever flag you are sailing under.

Your ass would belong to the pirates. Might as well join them and sail the seas!

But you would have to buy and register your boat from somewhere. Unless you hand fabricated it which is EXTREMELY unlikely. And if it wasn't registered I'd imagine you would have some pretty big problems trying to enter sovereign waters and ports to refuel and pick up supplies.

I'm just being real dawg!

You want me to tell y'all that you could build a floating palace and do whatever the fuck you want in international waters?

Well you can't unless you are EXTREMELY resourceful.
