    Hi there.

    My name is Christian. I have seen your message in the Forum saying you live in Croatia. My girlfriend and I will go to Croatia in June, as we have been looking to buy a 40' sailboat and Croatia has so many options. We are from Brazil and I have been to Croatia before and loved it!

    We're needing some help with all the tax subject. I have been studying as much as I can but it's still confusing. Could I ask you a few questions if you don't mind?

    Would be great to hear from you!

    Kind regards

    On 11/20/11 you posted this: "We have steps to first spreader however the nav equip is all linked to a Raymarine E120 Plotter i'm putting a small wide angle camera (same as engine-room camera etc) at the second set spreaders to give a birdseye view for poking around coral with low light. Not expensive and handy as! Cheers" Frank

    I'm wondering how well the camera worked out? I am considering much the same to aid in dodging coral heads and such like. Looking for folks who have used them and found them helpful. Cheers!

    Hi Frank sorry for the delay in getting back to you, still at work up in the Timor Sea with a dreadfully slow satelite email/internet link. Been getting the Rig ready for shifting down to a possy 200nm NW of Broome, looking forward to working out of Broome for 10 months.....yeah pretty slack with the boat pics, but truth be known i'm not a great fan of posting up that sort of stuff after it was discovered a friend lost his Mustang to theives who garnered the info from a car working away for extended periods, boat left alone etc etc....

    Weather wise in the Timor Sea it's been getting as low as 27c during the night and hitting 33/35c during the day, the wind has not gone over 15 knots for four weeks, usually <5 knots so glassout conditions not ideal for sailing....

    Read your thread comment on wiring inside the mast. When the tiime comes I'd like to discuss this further with you. I'm in the middle of a major refit and the mast is one of the last things on my mind at this point. Just wanted to make contact so I didn't lose the connection. I'll probably use grey pvc. 48ft mast, one set of spreaders. Changing from wire to rope halyards. That's as far as I am on the mast. Hopefully chat later.

    Hi Lagoon4us,

    I read your posting about costs - how did you manage to get that price in Kremik? I am there since two years (Cayman, Lagoon 410, staybridge G) and I pay 11.000€.

    Another question - I am lookig for a Cat, in which I can live for a longer period. The 410 is not "big" enough for me (I am 6`7 / 2,00m and weighting 125 KG). I want a boat, in which I can stand up in the hulls, under the shower and in the saloon and in which I can pass the doors without winding in.I looked at the 450 and it will fit - but it´s quite a lot of boat with a lot of unneccessary gimmicks. Is the 440 as high inside?

    See you in Kremik

    Hi L4us

    I was reading your posts on "Buying a Cat in the Med" and wondered what you ended up paying for your 440 and what its asking price was. You mentioned 25% discount. Did you do better than that? How long did you spend in the Med looking or did you identify all your prospects before making the long trip. It sounded like you also shopped in the US too, how did that go? Did you have any techniques for finding the rich owner with a new boat on the way? Did you use a buyers broker or did you negotiate directly with the selling broker? Do you think it would be better to shop in low season like November or does it matter?

    Thank you

    Eric Lindahl
