I am assuming you are a US resident and you do not live in Canada.
You buy the boat in canada. Since you are US resident, you do not have to pay taxes in Canada.
Once you reach US waters you will have to pay taxes. Next pay your registration.
Back to Canada, no taxes to pay. It is already done.
Moving to California, same - nothing to pay.
In case you are Canadian or you have permanent residence in Canada.
When you are back in Canada with your boat registered in US, you may apply for a temporary storage or use of Canadian waters to avoid paying taxes for a stay longer than 3 months. You might involve need of emercency repairs to have your request approved by Canadian Cost Guard. This way you will save Canadian Taxes.
Hope this help.
