Re: Cheap Multis and Projects

bringing back a boat with clear wa title (even if tabs expired) should not be an issue for the buyer. if concerned, call us customs first. it is the us customs you will check in with, canada customs would not have anything to do with the transaction. speaking from recent personal experience. that said, the current owner may not be leagally allowed to sell the boat in canadian waters, but that is on them and not the buyer

if anyone is intimidated by the prospect and otherwise interested in the boat i am local, could help assist or deliver.

Re: Cheap Multis and Projects

I mentioned Canadian Customs because they would most likely have a record of the boat's entry which would be sent to the US data base. If you snuck across this could be awkward for later cruising North. Like wise the legitimate entry into the US will notify the Canadians the boat is no longer there. One other thing you would need besides title and registration for US Customs is your DTOPS transponder decal from Homeland Security, a requirement for boats over 30 feet. This is inexpensive and easy to get after opening a account with Homeland Security and being verified.

Was not aware of this DTOPS transponder, I took my Gemini 3000 into Canada while delivering it from Connecticut to Lake Superior back in 2012 crossing Lake Ontario and transiting the Trent Severn waterway and re-entering the US at Sault St Marie , nobody mentioned it.

Re: Cheap Multis and Projects

Is your Gemini 30' or under? If so it would slip through. It might be more lax where you are but up here with the open sea border they go by the book. If you don't have one on the way back in they'll have you fill out the paper work on the spot. The Canadian's don't need any of this, it's a US requirement. The DTOPS web site has the information.

Re: Cheap Multis and Projects

The way the government works if it reads "decal required over 30' you are all right. Just don't count prodders and aft rail davits and barbecues.

I was close buying this 3 years ago when it was laying in Port Townsend...without the engine installed (but engine included).

I ended up with another boat instead. Now when it showed up for sale from new owner I got a little bit interested. Got in contact with the owner. Asked about rot and rot repairs. The owner answered where he had repaired and also mentioned it was so easy to repair.
-Just drill some holes and fill with epoxy.

For me, it feels like not the best repair. Better to replace the rotted part.
