    Hi. I'm in South Africa - they just changed our local rules to make it not-so-attractive to be registered here. If you have any advice on a convenient Flag to register under I'd like to know. Planning to go cruising next year... Paul

    Can I describe the registration of the boat to you, which I want to buy and ask for your advice?
    With regards

    Hi Laidback, I see a post from you. Where is the best place to register a boat? I can't register in my home country be cause the law don't allow it on used boats.
    Many Thanks!!!

    Did meet an Alex and his thai girlfriend, he was from Spain and travelling on the wharrum cat "turtle", saw him in Afulu.
    He was just getting ready to fly back to
    spain from Guning Sitoli, he ahs a cat in langkawi/phuket, that he charters.
    I am back in Sibolga for a new visa and go down to Padang and retrieve what gear is left from Eloise.

    Just to increase comfort. It's not about the Europa in particular. Our goal is to be more comfortable, more of the time, in a wider variety of seas. More boating and less waiting for good weather.

    Gulf of Mexico, preferrably the Panama City, Pensacola, to Louisiana area. Do some have houseboats that they lease out longer term themselves or do the houseboats have to be purchased? I appreicate any feedback.

    Hi, The bridle clips onto the chain just above the last roller, there is normally enough slack to pull it into the locker a bit higher. It then just drops down when the chain is lowered. When pulling up anchor you hoist the chain until the bridle clip just comes over the roller on top. You then stop pulling up the chain, unclip the bridle hook, hook it on the U bolt and carry pulling up the chain. It works well and is very easy. Due to the way the chain lies it also acts as a great shock absorber if there is a strong wind or big swell. The great thin is you are well inboard and not hanging over the bow when you anchor. Any other questions please give me a shout. Cheers Paul
