Tin-pot island governments haven't changed. I recall
an island that would fine or seize a yacht for not flying their flag. The kicker
was, the pols changed the flag's design at random intervals and made them so intricate it was impossible to carry the color scraps to duplicate them. Travel as an employee and let the delivery
people deal with that insanity. Whatever the "cost of doing business" is, the clients who charter
the yachts cover it. Bottom line, independent Skippers won't be burdened with the ridiculous red tape
and folks get paid to deliver boats and see the world.
