First, IMHO, you're better off registering the boat in Canada, especially if you plan on leaving US waters. State registrations aren't generally recognized internationally, as states are not sovereign nations. You can NOT USCG document the boat without being a US citizen. A Canadian registration should be recognized internationally, unless you do a provincial registration, rather than a national one—this is the same problem state registered boats have BTW.
You're probably going to have to pay sales tax on the boat, especially if you're in Texas for more than a month or two.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
