Buy in the US, LA & cruise to Australia 2008
Hi all, Aussies Lizzie and I (Roger) have just purchased a Jeanneau 45 in LA, now to register the yacht as an Aust vessel for Int cruising.
Will depart for Honolulu in about October, then time our run for Tahiti to miss the cyclone season down south, then its slow down time until Fiji where we will stay for 9 months (Max permit time - just been reviewed by the Fiji gov't from 3 months).
As we will not leave the US mainland until October we have to leave the US within 3 months and then reenter (So we are told), so its off to Mexico, Ensenada, for 2 days and then return to LA and reenter, then apply for a 12 month US cruising visa.
This appears to be the way it works - still dotting the 'i's' on all this.
Hopefully friends will crew with us.
If anyone has any thoughts or comment on the above we would love to hear them.
Roger. Paloma Blanca.
