As it was Saturday, the Cavtat office was closed so they had to go all the way back to Dubrovnik. In addition they had to pay a penalty. It came around Eur 400 in total.
In summary it was obvious that the Coast Guard were sitting there to harass unaware boaters. If they wanted to collect the money
, I would organize somebody on board that can charge the boats on the spot and avoiding all this annoyances.
Assume thatīs the layover charge which was terminated by 1.July.
A "gift" to Croatia
like toll and shown by vignette. All foreign boats in croatian waters had to pay this charge, depending on length of boat and stay.
But Iīm sure they will create a new charge in 2014. Itīs Balkan.
