I was thinking of a similar kind of deal and have recently researched the matter.
You can't register the boat in Canada unless you are a Canadian citizen. You may be able to license
in one of the provinces there for temporary use, but for the low down, contact the Office of Boating Safety
in the province where you want to purchase
your boat - see local phone
directories for number.
When you apply for CG documentation
, you are applying for federal registration
. That can be done from outside the US, and does not involve state registration
, which is done through the states and not possible usually unless the boat is present in the state. You don't need one to get the other.
Contact the USCG documentation Center's website for more. Do a Yahoo search to find it in about 3 seconds.
