Welcome to the Forum Frans
True...they are cheaper here but why go back? Tie up your loose ends there and go voyaging for a few years. Leave the boat in some tropical paradise when you have to go home and take care of business. No sense paying import tax if you become a World citizen...

"Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well-preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming: Wow - what a ride!"
