Question Buying in Mexico or Canada

Are there any particular landmines I need to watch out for in considering a boat located in either Mexico or Canada? Taxes? Registration? Import fees?

If the boat is made in Canada there will not be duty because of free trade. I am not aware any boats made in Mexico.

Taxes and registration would not be any different whether you buy a local boat or import one I don't think.
