    We need to get into importing ski's from Fl to Aruba and the surrounding islands!! I buy used ski's and fly them to you. Is there a market?

    There is the market but only for the ones that have spare $$ cause we pay 40% on top of the purchase price & shipping. so example $11.000 (doo) + $1000 (shipping) $12.000 x 40% = $4800 (thats import duties alone!!! ) so end cost would be $16.800,00 for a new ski. wich is in our money $16.800,00 x 1.78= Afls.29.904,00

    If you don't mind me asking, How does the Labor wage in Aruba compare against American wages for the same trade? Let's say for the following;

    1. General Labor @ $8.00US per hour
    2. Superintentant/Supervisior/Manager @ 15.00-$20.00 Per hour
    3. Experienced Project manager @ $35,000- $60,000 year

    I know your confersion rate is 1 US Dollar for 1.78 Aruban but always wondered how labor rate converted.

    29,904Afls sounds like alot of cash for a Sea-Doo but I'd buy mine all over again if I had too.
