Transit log, regulations and costs around the globe

Hello... I've done some search regarding these issues but I couldn't get much higher.
As a free spirit I think I should be able to sail around as I wish with no custom regulations.( like pirates)
But I've found that, countries like Turkey and Greece charge transit log as soon as you enter their coast.
On the other hand I've read that If you put the quarantine flag on, you can stop by a cove and spend a night or few days without stepping on the land and then move on.
My question is : Can I simply take a boat ( something around 7 mt long, 9.9 hp engine catamaran with sail) and sail by the shore of the countries with out any cost ? any decleration ?( I have issues with demanding authorities)
And can I make a quick stop and grab some fuel, water, vital stuff and swim back to boat ?
Is this possible around Med or Indian Ocean or Australia and Pacific and Atlantic ?

I hope you got the picture. Thank you very very much.
