My negotiation to buy a Florida
sailboat just took a disappointing turn and I’m about ready to default to ‘plan B’ – which is to buy ex-charter in Virgin Islands
in the area, then begin a meandering return to US. One of the details to work out is where to refit
? In another thread, someone said St. Martin was best option. But I’m wondering if Puerto Rico
is not the better choice for price
and selection. It looks like there are at least two West Marine
stores there, which has gotta be a good sign. And I understand there are no duties on U.S. imports.
I would appreciate any local knowledge on this.
