Re: Canada to US purchase/transfer

I did it last spring, although on a much smaller scale. I used a customs broker since I couldn't be at the border to receive the boat. My biggest nightmare was dealing with the shipper (who brokered out the delivery). The guy who actually did truck the boat and trailer was terrific and evidently makes the trip from Canada weekly. All that said, it was a fairly inexpensive and painless process just using the customs broker. They walk you through all the steps for a small fee. BTW the trucker was Dave at Bothwell Boatworks.
