Re: Canadian resident registering boat in US. Duty question
Yes, the OP would be best off to pay register the boat in Canada, pay the Canadian taxes, and enjoy the inside passage.
In the OP registering the boat in Canada would present another set of problems and he would have to then re-register the boat in Alaska. This is not about enjoying the inside passage but about relocating a boat which unfortunately for this purchaser is through Canada where being a resident is a disadvantage.
