Correct. He would have to go to Puerto Williams first; clear in, clear out then Ushuaia. Then he would have a shitstorm with corrupt customs etc to get his spares.. Not a good way to do it.. I know he has done it now... just agreeing.And also, you can't go through Chilean territorial waters direct to Ushuaia without seriously pissing orf the Chileans. Last bloke I know that played that game was fined US$50k - reduced on appeal to $5k - and was kicked out of the country and told not to bother coming back.
Then there are the issues with importing stuff into Argentina and even just getting things down from BA.
I took a short cut in through some islands at the eastern end of the Beagle once and went straight to Ushuaia (it was only a tiny shortcut but beer o'clock was fast approaching) and got a very severe dressing down when I next went to Puerto Williams.
