I am refering to the headline only, I did not read all the previous posts:
The disadvantage of wintering in Italy
is that it is by law not allowed to work on the boat on land and to live on the boat on land, although some marinas
It is said that it has something to do with insurance
, accidents that have happened.
I have stayed in Aquileia over last winter and I have seen people working on the boat, asked why they told me that they are in the marina for a long time already. As I wanted to to the same they refused.
I have learnt from German sailing forums
that at Sibari
they allow it. The disadvantage of Sibari is that you never know when the the canal is digged out the next year, sometimes in June only.
