Transit Log costs Greece/Turkey
since the issue of the cost of the transit log for greek waters is already solved, you have nothing to fear because of the vessel''s flag (turkish). As a normal citizen and sailor abiding by the law, you will just register at the entry port authority, go through passport control and make a declaration to the customs service there. Once done, when you visit other greek harbours you might be asked to pay fees, with which I imagine that you will dutifully comply. Judging from the numbers of Turkish sailors around the Greek islands, they seem more to mind about the weather (gusty, variable and unpredicted wind conditions) than being afraid of Greek bureaucracy. Moreover, you will be rather positively discriminated and welcome, regarded as someone promoting friendship between the two nations (Greece is now a champion of Turkey''s participation in EE-European Union)!
