Canadian Boat

Im considering making an offer on a boat on the Canadian side of the border near Detroit.

What problems will I encounter trying to bring this US manufactured boat back into the US and title it in my state?

As I cast off for that very first time,
The "rope" in my hand has now become "line".
And hauling the sails to the top of the mast,
That "rope", now a "halyard" holds strong, taught and fast.
Then sailing in brisk winds full force on a beat.
The sails are trimmed in by that "rope" that's a "sheet".
And now at my anchorage with sails safely stowed,
I trust in that "rope" that now serves as a "rode".
Through all my life I will never lose hope,
Of a reason or time to play with a rope.

Re: Canadian Boat

I did the reverse a few years ago. There were no big problems. After completing the sale I had to un-Document the boat in the US, which in Canada is called (un)Registration. Then I had to import the boat when I crossed the boarder. I paid my Canadian taxes which were based on the value listed in the official bill-of-sale. If it had been a non-NAFTA boat I'd also have to pay import duties.

That's it. Done.

I assume the process going from Canada to the US is similar.

Why go fast, when you can go slow.

Thanks Mike...seems simple enough...

Re: Canadian Boat

Given the dollar wit you enjoy these days I'm sure this is a regular occurrence.
