Aren't the USVI exempt from the Jones Act?

That was part of the stink with PR and the exemption.

Yes, USVI is exempt. Hence SevenStar from St. Thomas to Palm Beach.

Apparently, the US just completed the purchase of USVI from Denmark in 1917. the Jones Act went into place in 1920 but excluded the USVI so as not to disturb existing revenue streams.

" but now it needs too much work to make the trip.
Don't get excited I'm not doing anything I was just curious."

If it needs that much work, either dont buy it or if you ow it, just maybe cheaper to sell it there and buy something else when you get back to the States.

Where are you located? There's a LN on the West Coast and the East Coast that would be cheaper to have delivered I would think.

I'm in Tennessee and just dreaming right now . I have to sell what I have first . I agree the one on the East coast makes more sense .
