Good Luck Adax after just deflagging a French boat and putting an Australian flag on it, I would talk to the people in the German shipping
registry or what ever they call themselves.
Hopefully they will be as helpful as the Aussies were.
If the French flag has been removed and no other has been put on I would think that is a big plus.
Do you have the cert de radiation to prove this has been done?
You say the french papers are perfect but they should have been surended to the French authorities before the cert de radiation was issued so I'd be carefull there.
I would expect you need a bill of sale
from the legal
owner but should not be hard to get.
Any other countries' papers should be irrelevent of the boat is not flagged to that country.
Again speak to your fellow Germans in the authority they will make or break you.
