The big problem with doing the work in Cuba, beyond the illegality, an illegality which I wish would change but which is still the law, is the difficulty of getting marine parts, and consumables. Simple things like marine grade fastenings and plywood are not really available down there. Epoxy, the heart of any restoration is virtually unavailable. And once you are there you can''t just go online hand have it air shipped in.
