Re: Canadian resident registering boat in US. Duty question
YKM, just a word of caution regarding the E99. When we were trying to transit the Welland Canal we were told by one CCBA official we could use the form. Another said no. Another said maybe. Another said something else. CCBA seem to have no idea what they doing. You ask three CCBA officials and you'l get at least 4 answers. So if you can, get the form pre-approved then provide little information unless asked. Good luck, you'll need it.
EBS001, that above is exactly what we're worried about, and why we've put off buying this boat until we know what's up. This is also why I asked our MP to look into it. It makes me nervous to get multiple and conflicting answers from different officials. I'll see if we can what you suggest and get it preapproved
We might have to regroup and buy a North American made boat, which solves the duty problem. We just pay the GST and be done with it because the Yukon has no territorial tax. I love the Tashiba boat, but not at any price. We also looked at a Pacific seacraft that was very nice
