Re: new California tax?
A personal property tax normally is applied only to personal property owned by a citizen or resident of the taxing jurisdiction. The OP didn't say anything about residency, he said a Canadian boat, which would imply a Canadian-flagged vessel in transit visiting California waters under a cruising permit, and exempt from all local taxes.
Unless the OP forgot to mention something.
