I have an inflatable boat that I would like to take with me I don't want to risk getting on a boat with 20 or so people or even getting rejected by the airline (if I attempted to claim asylum during transit) so it got me thinking if I travel on a plane from Lebanon to Turkey can I take it (my inflatable boat) with me and if so how and how much would I have to pay (it's around 25-30KG deflated)?
Edit: Also are there many pirates and would the Greek coast guard stop me if so what would they do to me? Finally is that ocean dangerous even if I don't have a lot of weight on board and the weather is calm ?
Note: My boat can carry 660KG I'm only 70-80KG maybe 100KG with all my supplies along with a VHF radio (if I can find one in Turkey) to send a mayday /distress signal if something bad was to happen to me.
Thank You Again
Boat sounds very risky. There are regular reports of drown refugees on TV. Can't you try to take safer way? Is there no option to travel in turkey to the greece land border and sign asylum there? I have zero experience with that, but i have a bad feeling with your plan.
What kind of education do you have? Is there an option that get an official european blue card to avoid this whole asylum status?
As David already pointed out traveling by boat on your own sounds really dangerous and I would highly advise against it!
Even if the boat can be used offshore and if the conditions are well (calm weather and sea), you are not an experienced sailor, right? Additionally the sea is getting more rough during winter months (that's what the Hellenic/Greek coast guards says on their website).
If the Greek coast guard finds you in the open sea they will probably pick you up to save you from the dangerous situation that you would be in at that moment. But you'd have to meet one of these ships first - and that's not guaranteed!
I understand that you are facing an unbearable situation at the moment, but all in all this is a plan that I definitely wouldn't recommend.
Still I wish you all the best,
