Canada to USA

I am moving my new boat from BC to San Francisco and then to the delta. I am having a captain bring to Blaine Washington for me. He tells me I need a Import broker to do the paper work. The boat is registered in BC but was previously registered in the US.
If anyone knows a broker or has information on the process I would appreciate the help.

What Peter said. Pacific Maritime Title will cost you a few bucks but they will save you much more than that in headaches.

I used these guys when I brought my boat from the US into BC. They worked great for me.

I used Pacific Maritime Title when we bought our boat in Seattle (private deal). Well worth the money, they earned every cent. They held the money in trust, searched the title and managed the sale. Happy customer.
