BR thanks for the links, I would of thought there would be a lot more drama and red tape to flag a yacht, so i posted here to maybe pick up some loupe holes ect ect thanks,

No worries, Johnny. But I'm wondering why you don't register her in Oz. You don't have to actually be there to flag it there. Good luck w/ the boat.
