Re: Canadian resident registering boat in US. Duty question
The customs people told me the fact that I am a dual citizen makes no difference, it is because we reside in Canada that we have to pay the taxes and import the boat
That is my understanding. Some friends had a US registered boat that they kept in Anacortes; they could not bring it to Canada. Another had his Canadian registered boat in Point Roberts; no problems.
WA to AK on the outside - ouch; against wind and current, and cold.
