Anyway, the advise to transfer the car is spot on.
Check with OHIP. In BC we can get a 2 year suspension of health care so you don't have a waiting period for coverage when you return...if you return.

Sounds like the start of a great adventure.

Re: Will I have a problem entering the US from Canada with this plan ?

As to the borrowed boat, ascertain the expiration date of its USCG documentation, or its State registration. Be sure that the owner maintains its documentation or registration for the duration of your cruise. Have the owner provide you with the new documentation or registration if and when it is renewed so you have it on-board.

Follow the cruising permits requirements of each state whose waters you might linger within, typically requires a cruising permit if staying beyond 90 days when visiting a state jurisdiction; evaluate each state's unique laws in that regard.

Make sure your auto insurance policy includes coverage for extensive driving in the USA. Yee be on a road trip.

Watch out for them North Carolinians, beware they are not crazy drivers!

Don't bring a snow shovel.

Bring a Canadian to Yankee Speak dictionary or download an app so as to be able to translate. I have one to be able to talk to the Albertans when they are visiting Montana.

Bring mosquito repellent, I hear tell that the buggers are huge [as big or bigger than the one's in Banff] and out in force in North Carolina due to the flooding caused by Florence.

Bring Goo Off to be able to clean the tar from your heels that will accumulate when you arrive in NC.

Obtain health insurance coverage for your family for the international countries you are intending to visit, your Canadian provincial insurance will cover almost none of the expenses you may incur if your are sick or injured while outside of Canada.

Re: Will I have a problem entering the US from Canada with this plan ?

When I left the USA with my US documented boat, I had to push the US Customs officer in Newport, RI to give me a "zarpe".

Several customs officers that I spoke with didn't know what a zarpe is.

It is US Customs form 1300 usually for cargo ships.

It is good to have a paper trail.

Also a record of all the equipment on board with the serial numbers can be asked for, but not in my experience.

What MOTTSENG said in #7 … all other comments are just forum babble that has a 'value rating' of zero when facing US Customs agents … remember this: U.S. Customs Agents have powers above & beyond those of any other enforcement agencies & they will not hesitate to use them regardless of what anyone has said or informed you of on this forum.

Re: Will I have a problem entering the US from Canada with this plan ?

AFAIK if you are "permanently" bringing a car into the US, or bringing it in with the intent to sell or otherwise transfer ownership to any US party, which would include a junkyard or charity, you need to formally import it. And that might require DOT and EPA compliance issues, tariff, all sorts of regulatory tangles.

But on the other hand, scrapyards do sometimes just "make it disappear" although they won't pay you for that.

So that's something you want to explore with the powers that be. There are plenty of Canadian snowbirds in Florida, surely, someone would be willing to take it off your hands and bring it back to Canada if that's the simplest solution.

You may also find that, needed or not, it makes your entry easier if the "cruising supplies" are all in closed boxes prominently labeled "Goods for yacht in transit" with the yacht name on it. Technically, no, you're not shipping things to a yacht in transit out of her home waters, but wtf....the yacht will be in transit, you might just confuse a US land crossing border guard, and when they're embarrassed at unfamiliar things, sometimes they just wave you on to get rid of you.

Too much alcohol, tobacco...Yeah, there are probably some limits on even THOSE kind of supplies.(G)

There are various reasons why an "alien" may want to get a 1300 form when leaving the US. It works well as proof that you did not overstay your entry stamp or reached tax residency daycount.

Plus a billion ! But it's worth a good laugh.
BTW, I have a friend who married a Candian.
When she became a US citizen she brought her Canadian car.
They eventually had to drive it back to Canada and sell just to get rid of it.
