First off, let me state clearly to those who typically pounce on these types of questions that I am not using Cruisers Forum as my sole source of advice on this topic! But perhaps somebody has been down this road before.
We're looking at Norway
for next winter, and really can't find anything online that fits our situation.
Our boat is US flagged, owned by an LLC.
We want to winter the boat in the water
somewhere on the W. coast, but I will be off the boat for more than the 6 weeks allowed over the winter.
Indeed, I would be breaking Norwegian law
by complying with this requirement, as I would overstay my allowed time by immigration!! There's no way to not break the rules one way or the other.
We do not want to go into bonded storage
, as we will live on board for much of the time over the winter.
The Norwegian customs
site has very little info.
Any insights from non-EU boats who have done this?
