SOFAR was nice enough to hook me up with their agent and pay the duties. But I need to have a business license in Mexico to import. I don’t have one, and getting one likely requires me to have other conditions met and would make me liable for taxes here. For a personal hobby project this may not be viable.
I’ve got a few ideas still, but I was likely premature blogging about this before I actually had the hardware in hand. I should have learned from my time on the Research Vessel Atlantis.
We constantly had import problems and the ship’s agent was routinely dealing with getting things through customs. I worried about that but SOFAR said they could handle it.
I’m hopeful, but let’s wait and see! There’s not much I can do about it.
