Canadians really just don't appreciate how important it is to hire a licensed and specialized marine transaction translator before getting involved in any boating business transaction in the US. He'd have saved a bundle by hiring one.

Anybody else notice, that Google Translate and the Babelfish both fail to offer a Canadian-US English translation option? What's with that anyway? Arabic, Etruscan, Swahili, but no Canadian ?!
