Importing kits

Hi, I'm thinking of possibly getting a kayak kit to build in my spare time and keep me out of mischief until the family move over later in the summer. I like the look of the pygmy kayaks but have little idea about the taxes I may incur by bringing it into Canada. I assume I'll be hit for gst and pst on top of the cost. Is this right and is there anything I can claim back? Would it be worth my while getting a po box in the US for something like this?
TIA
