Yes, many boats of non-US manufacture are USCG documented. The USCG DOCUMENTATION doesn't care where the boat was built, but what the citizenship of the owners is...
Bljones, thanks for the recommends. I concur with your thinking about freshwater boats and especially ones in northern climates. The boat might be 30 years old, but it was used half as much as the same boat further south.
I do like the Southern Cross 31, especially if they are "factory finished". This one looks good, but is one of the higher priced ones...I will keep my eye on it. The CS36 Traditional is a great boat. The ones in great shape are usually just out of my price range or aren't the shoal-draft versions. Plus, now I'm slipping into "big" boat issues. But, again, I like them...
Speaking of Niagaras and CSs, does anyone know if we in the U. S. can document a boat manufactured outside the U.S.?

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
