Visa issue/Schengen. How do you it?

Please describe how you manage the visa complications when you intend to stay in a country for longer than 90 days? Esp. when the Schengen rules apply. For example, my family is planning a trip to Spain for the winter. We would like to make our sailboat home base in Estepona from November till June. After, we'll travel the canals of France and Germany up to Sweden. That entire trip could take us 9 months. I heard back from the consul of Spain saying I could get a residency visa when I get to Spain since I am married to a Swedish citizen. But would that mean I have to get visas for France and Germany too since I will be traveling longer than Schengen rules allow. Confusion is in the air

Thanks,

It may depend on what passport, you carry.

Cheap...here's a good link to Jack Tyler's Euro Prep site which discusses Schengen options for cruisers..Also suggest you check out the SSCA.org bulletin board and do a search on Schengen. Good Luck!
