Long term storage in Argentina?

Hi, Will be sailing down the East coast of S.America and will need to fly home for a bit, either before or after rounding the Horn. Any recommendations on long term (one season) storage either in Argentina or on the Chilean side.? Thanks.

If you want storage before rounding the Horn it will have to be Uruguay or Brazil; Argentina does not have a long-term tax-free storage scheme that will let you keep the boat there more than a few months. I am afraid too many Argentines have abused the system design for nonresidents.

In Uruguay you can consider the Piriapolis dry storage yard (US$ 0.16 per day per square meter with area calculated as LOA times beam plus one meter).

In Southern Brazil you can consider leaving it in the water in Porto Frade, close to Angra, with a good caretaker (hectorveleiros at yahoo dot com dot ar).

I have no idea about Chile.Hopefully Pinguino can chime in.
