Ok so here's the update. Shipping through Janes was painless. Exactly as they said it would be. I had my package labeled as suggested and sent via fed ex. Came 4 days ahead of schedule. Went to Janes and presented my customs clearance papers for the boat which she photocopied and took to the airport. Next day I had my package. Her services cost $77 US and were exactly as described. Janes staff were pleasant to work with, responded quickly to email and I would certainly recommend their services to others needing to ship to Antigua. I did not pay duty on any of my items just the agent fee. The chandleries here also will sell to you duty free if you provide you clearance papers.

I'm really not sure what the nightmare was but maybe I just got lucky? Yes st Martin is a better place to ship to/from but this was certainly not a bad experience.
