Bringing a boat across the line is simple enough... surprisingly the biggest hassle with bringing a trailerable boat over the border is not the boat but the trailer itself. Licencing and inspections seem the hold up there...

Otherwise, it's simply a matter of making contact on arrival, providing some info and in most cases it's all over the phone... they give you 3 days to report and pay taxes (and duty if applicable.)

As far as moorage goes, in the mid 20 foot range your odds are much better than in the 30+ range... Mosquito Creek in N Van usually has some space, but even other marinas will often be able to squeeze in a smallish boat like that. Also, some boat sales now come up with transferable moorage which is another good way to get into a slip.(but be sure to check that that really is part of the marina's policy...)

its traditionally been really tough to find moorage around here, but lately it seems to be easing up. Mosquito Creek Marina in North Van has recently done an expansion, they might have something available. Lynwood Marina is also in North Van, worth a check. If you're planning on purchasing something within a year, its a good idea to call around and add yourself to all the waiting lists now. Coal Harbour, Burrard Civic & Heather Civic in False Creek etc.

Beyond that, given how hard it is to sell a boat these days there are a lot more listed for sale with transferable moorage. If you're lucky enough to find something local maybe it will include a slip.

quick hello from WA. we also have a house on SSI, so we cross the boarder a lot and have friends on both sides of the border. agree with the post on the cross border issues. boat is easy. trailers are harder.

if you are interested in a project boat give me a pm.
