I also live in Ontario and have in the past purchased a boat in the USA. One think to check is the trailer. It should have a plate on it with serial
number, manufacturer, weight, date of manufacture etc. indicated. This is required in order to import
it. Ours had been removed when the trailer was pressure washed by the boat dealer. Fortunate for us the dealer was able to get a replacement from the trailer manufacturer. This took over a month as it required a title search etc.
Also be prepared to prove the price
you paid for it. The bill of sale
from a dealer was not enough. We had a paper copy of the web page offering the boat for sale
. They also went on the internet
and checked it, the dealer still had the ad up with a sold on it.
Enjoy the trip, Bob
