Importing Personal Water Craft from US

Does anyone know the rules at the border. I am in Ontario and buying two SeaDoo's in New York. What do I pay?

Thanks So much.

Probably alot! You will have to pay GST for sure, and there is an import duty on boats not made in North America, but I don't know if PWC's are boats in that respect.

You will have to pay PST and GST, I do not believe there is any other duties. If they are Sea Doos they were built in Canada or more corrrectly the Nation of Quebec

You can just show up at the border with a proper bill of sale and go in and pay the taxes. If you are near a border crossing go ask them, if not you can go to the new places that they set up that are called Service Canada which is where you go now to register the vessel. They should have all the info for you.

If they aren't, they should be. I recommend they officially be declared skeet and can be used for target practice.

Horrors...... what an attitude I think it should be something simple and fair like a $100 fine payable on demand to every person they annoy. At a few thousand dollars an hour maybe they would get the point and just go away

A few thousand dollars? Stan, with all due respect, I think you're underestimating just how many people they annoy. BTW, how ya doing? Get the sails up yet?

Well....around here we affectionatly refer to them as Bay Lice.... so.... ya know even the best of us can get infected with Head Lice, Body Lice, or Bay Lice so we try to live and let live
Yes... hopefully my winter projects are mostly behind me - knock on all my newly re-finished exterior wood and I can get out next weekend to really use my completely re-made fuel filtering system...... and YES, raise my sails finally, including my shortened mizzen to allow for my new bimini... whew.... what a winter....

TB - We've got a 4 day weekend coming up so a little cruise around the bay with an overnighter at Kickamuit is the tentitive plan.... so I'll have an excuse to use my second electrically powered bilge pump that I just finished Sunday to grab the shower water before it infests the bilge with hair and soap scum. Tooting my own horn some more...... ahh...yup
