I was wondering if you could expand on the details around deflagging, bribes and time delays you went through?
I’m not fishing
for any identifying info, just wondering about the hurdles encountered
I’m interested in a European catamaran
there but know nothing else of what to expect beyond the asking price
Did you US/other register your boat after leaving DR or before?
Appreciate any extra you could tell
