I have to agree with the above posters. You need to register it somewhere and Canada is your best bet. In Texas, you have up to 20 working days after the sale to register the boat and pay taxes in Texas. After that, penalties start building up. If you register it in one of the states and go out of the country, you will have trouble returning.
If you need the name of a good surveyor, I can recommend a really good one.

Difference between a power boater and a sailor out on the water: A power boater is going some place special, a sailor is already there.
