Chopped Melanesia?

I am moving back to the US from Japan, and my Melanesia is too long for the moving company to fit in their custom crates. I considered selling, but it is about 90% complete, and I hate to lose it…Continue

ALL,My Melanesia is in transit to Italy.  Where is a good resource for laws and regs I may need to follow?  Specifically for small, engineless, pleasure craft.  I assume Italy will have their own ways of collecting fees or taxes on top of any EU requirements.  Are there differences between fresh/inland use versus sea use?Thanks in advance!See More

"Crossing an ocean... again.  This time she'll remain intact; at least that's the idea.  Hopefully, the bureaucratically heavy-handed EU don't cause too many problems at the POD."

"I am at a loss for the best technique to both align and compress the Ama halves while holding everything together. Any ideas? As all the glue and added wood will be internal, I’m not quite sure how to go about it."

Hello Nathan,
if you and your Melanesia will live in Italy you have to dig in the Italian Sea-Law. The regs to register a boat in the EU are non-uniform. Maybe you will have to pay VAT in the EU. But generally I think (don't know!) that you will have no legal problems to sail around with this small, engineless (!) vessel. Its more like a non-really-double-canoe, isn't it.

Michael
