Ushuaia doesn't have builders, it doesn't have anything except a few hardware
stores. Besides I can't go there as I have a pirate passport.. according to them and don't want to deal with that can of worms. second catch 22 on that is that I would need insurance
to go to Ushuaia for the survey
to get insurance
I'll check IMIS thanks for that.
Yes contacted the survey
companies and they are adamant that a survey is necessary. Contacted various associations of surveyors to try and find out if one is in the are by chance, but no such luck. Think the closest was in Valpariso.
I did try the self survey thing but the are not interested even though without sticking my neck out I could show many accredited surveyors a thing or too and have the CV to prove it. That is one of the things that really gets me with this. I have a track record
that is verifiable in preparing boats for the harshest environments but the insurance companies will only accept a survey from a surveyor
who has never seen a storm!
Good replies though, thanks everyone
