Any updates on this process?  I'm thinking of buying a boat in San Carlos and need to get this right.
I had heard that there was some red tape or illegality about selling boat "in" Mexico.  Typically foreign sales are made technically in another country (i.e. the money changes hands in the US or elsewhere),  but that it is a gray area and could raise questions when changing the TIPs.  I had also heard that it is illegal to have two active TIPs on one boat at the same time.  Any information about this?

As an aside in this process, someone said that you should have a "Captain's Note" from the old owner until the old TIP is cancelled.   This is the same type of permission that might be given to a delivery skipper to say he/she has a right to be sailing the boat.
