Lets make it more interesting (and probably typical). So what if you have a passport from one country, live in another country and are planning to buy a boat from another country and then go cruising?
For instance, lets say you are Canadian, living in Japan, planning on buying a Fountaine from France and plan to sail around the world (picking up the boat in France or having it sailed out to Japan for your departure)
Do you fly a Canadian flag? A Japanese flag (as that is where you were resident even though you are now on your way out for an extended abscence) or a French one as that is where you picked the boat up from? Where would you register/license this boat, Canada, Japan, France, nowhere?
