Address for Spares in Tobago

Following on from the Bukh spares thread, I've found a source of the part I need in UK who can send tomorrow, but what address do you use when anchored in Tobago! I believe I'll have to go to collect from customs with boat papers anyway but what address to I give for delivery?

Thanks

I have no specific knowledge of Tobago, but from experience elsewhere in the eastern Caribbean, you might convince the local chandlery or boatyard to accept the part for you, especially if you've spent some money with them. If you intend to bring the part in duty free (i.e. for a "yacht in transit"), you need to work it out in advance, including some paperwork.

Make sure it is shipped Fedex/UPS/DHL with a tracking number, and is labeled "PARTS FOR FOREIGN YACHT IN TRANSIT" then start calling the local office. They'll get you sorted out. Its a whole lot easier in Trinidad, where the Fedex/UPS/DHL guys know to deliver it to the customs office in Chagaramas, and the customs guys there understand no duty for yachts in transit. I would even think about taking the ferry over to pick it up, because it may end up in Chagaramas anyway.
