Default Advice please - Greece and Turkey

I am planning to do a bit of a quick trip next April from Mallorca to Istambul and the advice given so far indicates I could do this in 10 days with a run across to Sicily - then via the Corinth Canal - inside Evia northward - then across to the Dardanelles.

Has any one reading this cleared into Patras (Greece) and can share an opinion on facilities / ease with officials etc?

Patra is shown as a port of entry in the pilot books and it is conveniently en-route for Corinth Canal - but I hear one can waste lots of time clearing in.

And clearing into Turkey itself. Any practical advice on the best Turkish port of entry (best means easiest paperwork) along my route from Evia to Istambul?

Thanks in anticipation.

Got some advice elsewhere - It seems I can clear into Patras with few problems - but to get a Greek Cruising Permit I will need to visit the authorities in the town centre as opposed to just dockside.

It seems the easiest Turkish port of entry from the Aegean is at Ayvalik where the marina has offered local assistance in getting the needed Turkish Permits promptly.

Passing this on just in case another has a similar future need......
