Chris, it''s good to hear that you found the discussion helpful. Good luck with the registration...and with cruising.
One last comment: When going foreign in a boat, there can be quite a variance between theory and reality, between the letter of the law back home and how the world works ''out there''. I don''t envy you the first time you are flying a (e.g.) Canadian flag and (e.g.) French authorities arrive on your boat for a drug search, look at your papers and discover you are (e.g.) British registered. The flag you fly is often what officials in distant ports key off of and, in any event, will instantly want to understand why you fly a flag that is deceiving to them. I wonder what you''d say? If it''s the observation that you get to fly whichever flag you wish, independent of your vessel''s registration, you''ll be in for a bit of an education.
