I'm in St. Maarten and looking at a $350 price tag for my ENG 1.  I'm not able to get into the EU for a few months and I've heard prices aren't more encouraging in Ft. Lauderdale.  Is there a cheaper option somewhere in the Caribbean?

Hi there Definitely a medical issued by a medecin des gens de mer ( doctors for seamen). They are accepted by the MCA as an equivalent to ENG 1, and cost 25 euros the annual visit. It is called a medical aptitude certificate for seagoing duty , or a certificat medical d'aptitude a la navigation maritime in French. In Saint Martin it will be Dr Benedetti in Concordia, Marigot. 1,immeuble le metropole, 4 rue du soleil levant, 97150 st martin. Tel: +590590875462. You can find a maritime french doctor in every french islands, as well as mainland France, and the price is set at 25 euros. Hope it helps. Gautier
