So here is my question. What is involved in leaving a boat in a Canada port for a period of 2-4 weeks and for it being in Canada waters for 2-3 months?
We, and fellow owners [US citizens] of US documented vessels have had no issues with using/keeping our boats in Canadian waters for extended periods as needed. [One US citizen boating
friend now lives in BC as a legal
resident with his US Documented vessel...]
While the government
web sites are authoritative for looking up the current
requirements, your local NW Boating Info
site does a good job of distilling this information.
Best wishes on your journey.
