I'm sorry, I meant to respond to your prepurchase post. Could have saved you this headache.
should have guided you through this process. When I sold
my last boat
the funds were not released to me until I provided the AMSA paperwork needed by Norwegian shipping
authority (new owners were Norwegian). The (Florida based) broker
specialised in these transactions and was very professional
You going to need to beg or bribe help from the previous owner. It will be difficult to move the boat out of Panama
until the paperwork situation is resolved.
