Yes, even local proof coil is spendy I've found.

Re: Chain Supplier in Panama

We've been here a year now and see no point in leaving, maybe a quick run to Columbia and certainly deeper into the Guna Yala. Leaving in two days for the Robesons, the guy chipping our rust wants to go home to his family and farm, and we have never been there.

Re: Chain Supplier in Panama

I shipped in 100m of Maggi G7 direct from Italy to shelter bay. The freight was no more than from the USA.
Issue was customs clearance cost . No duty vessel in transit.

Paul
