I would not worry too much about the US $ against the Can $. It was certainly nice when the C$ was .68 US, but things were just priced accordingly. The Canadians now can afford US boats because they are plentiful and the dollar works in their favor. Works for both countries because it opens the doors to more buyers.

Used to be that Canadian boats were priced higher because they needed to offset the currency. Now, they compete with US boats, so the prices will seek the markets level.

Current currency is about $1US to $1.03+Can. Equal playing field. Still more boats for sale than buyers.
