If the boat is here, just title and document it in your partners name. My wife and I are the same- we live here, I am Canadian, and rather than go through any un needed hoops- she owns the boat, and it is a US boat. As far as when we leave, really don't think it'll make much difference at all. She'll be the Captain
, and have to check us in, etc..
We thought about documenting it in Canada
, but I could imagine the hassles of coming and going from our home port for example, and forget that.....I couldn't imagine trying to explain that to the marine
police for example... after some of the conversations with government
people over us and our kids
over the years (born in Canada
to an American mother- makes them dual)
