Japan to Southkorea, Ferry Problem

I have now reached Shimonoseki. But Kampu Ferry does not want to move to South Korea me because my FIA Carnet would not be accepted there. I must have one of ATA. Can anyone help to me?

I think the problem is that the ferry company did not check with Korean Customs. They are assuming that customs will refuse you.
I asked a Korean speaking friend to call Korean Customs to find out the details and have Korean Customs call the ferry company to say it is OK.
I will see my friend at the camp meeting later today and find out more details.
If you still have problems, try the ferry from Fukuoka. I sent you information on 30 September.

Best to wait to see if my advice worked before thanking me. Hartmut did not say that he was successful yet. (In fact, he posted on another thread yesterday the same question.) My friend passed all the info I have along to Hartmut's Korean friend, who will supposedly call Korean customs for a clear answer. If Korean customs in Busan says 'no' there isn't much I can do....
