  1. Guys, Can anyone help us with costs involved in exporting a NZ Yacht to Australia please? I assume there is duty (anyone know the rate?) and GST (10%), is there anything else? Thanks for any help
  2. I agree that It is difficult to meet everyone's needs , due to varying experience that people have. I found the pool sessions far and away the most useful - getting into a life raft and actually blowing up the life jacket were things that I wouldn't normally do.
