Here is the plan.
I am currently in the UK and want to purchase a boat in the US and then to cruise the Carib and eventualy take it to Australia (I am a dual national). Are there any problems with this?
I have a lot of sailing experience and have lived on a 60 foot steel ketch in Oz for 2 years. Navigation and sailing is not a problem.
Should I keep the boat US registered or re register under the small boat scheme here in the UK?
What ships papers would be needed and would I need any formal skippers licence? I have radio licences.
I would be on a very tight budget ($20,000) max and would want to live on this for a couple of years, is that a reasonable expectation?
Thanks for any help
