Hoppy oh I forgot about the grief I got with my radio
licence I could right a book on it the s%^# they gave me about that and the funny
thing is when I went and did the motor
boat training they bragged about how Australia
has the best safety
training system in the world it was a joke your not even tested to see if you have any boat or seamenship skills .
I have yacht master commercial
licence STCW95 now I made enquireys in regards to setting up a yacht based business in victoria with a yacht I am looking to purchase
and just run from November to April each yr , and guess what they are not valid for me to use in vic or Oz I need to go and get a Australian yacht masters 5 qualification bloody joke .
And on the GST/import duty. If you have owned yacht for more than 12 months then they will base the GST/duty on current
over enflated Australian Market not what you may of purchased it at and if you purchased a yacht say in last 3 months and are heading back and paid let's say 10000 euros for yacht you would be liable for 15000 euro GST/duty but back then 15000 euros = about $18000 now with the fall of the dollar it's about $23000
