Back to Indonesia
.......this thread started with the dramas of Blue Water
Rally yacht having dificulties trying to enter Indonesia
. I've just read a good one now of one yacht trying to leave Bali. Apparently the marina was out of diesel
, so what would any yachtie do.....they got out the jerry cans and wandered down to the local roadside garage where they could buy diesel
. After buying
it they were arrested because road diesel is subsidised and not allowed for use in yachts. That carries a penalty of 2 years in jail, errr, unless of course you can come up with about $2000 and then we can fix your problem. Of course the retailer wasn't in trouble for selling the stuff.
Why don't we just all give this place a big miss and go to a place that wants our trade
