My suggestion is that you speak with the boat's broker and include finding the shipper a part of the deal. The selling broker found this shipper; it's one they often use.

Get a Customs Broker (Todd at Sanders Brokerage in Blaine Wa. was great), and let the broker recommend a documentation service that often handles deals involving over the border purchases if doing so.

All in all, a PIA, but we put the costs in the loan.

Great for you! Sounds to good to be true. Keep us updated.
