    In the good old US of A, weapons on a yacht are a matter of state/local
    laws. With an Indiana carry permit I can most certainly carry handguns
    on Indiana and Michigan waters, or any other state that honors the
    Indiana permit or Utah non-resident permit. Subject of course to park
    and local regulations. Illinois waters become another matter, especially
    Chicago. If I pass through Illinois watersor other staes not honoring my
    permits without coming into a harbor, I can transport under the federal
    McClure Volker Act. I suspect woe is me if we tie up in a Chicago
    harbor, even if I do not remove the weapon from the vessel. I have never
    received a definitive answer on that from Coast Guard and have not
    approached Illinois/Chicago authorities with the question.
    The same goes for long guns (boaters' favorites being the Mossberg 500
    Mariner and Remington 870 Marine Magnum). Abide by state and federal
    laws and you are good to go.
    I would think Frank is correct on undisputed international waters. What
    happens on salt water bordering USA states, as well as bays etc. is
    unclear to me.
