can someone help with information about Greece
? I am US on US flag vessel. I thought I understood EU with the 18 month cycle in schengen. I got around the 3 month/6month? visa problem by getting temporary residency in
allowing me years in Greece. Several sources have gave me information that my boat
is past a VAT requirement as it is over 15 years old. Customs here in Rhodes have stamped my transit log restricting me to only use the boat for 6 months.
When I asked for the documentation
for that requirement I was told it was in Greek so could not understand it. I want to winter over in Greece, I could take the boat to Turkey
and restart the clock on the 18 month but this would do me no good for myself as I plan to spend the winter far enough away from Turkey
to make it inconvenient and I do not know from what the customs
tell me that it would reset my time. it was suggested that I reflag the vessel to a EU country but it seems to me that would cause a myriad of other unknown problems. Any suggestions a links to resources?
