Cross border shopping is a hot topic and a pendulum. All depends where you are in the deal. Right now a lot of our stock is going south. Brokers love it local buyers don't. That was a sweet arrangement you had. Made the government happy too I guess, collecting double tax, unless brokers are exempt if boats are purchased for "stock."
At the time we paid 1.5% import tax and saved 11% on the purchase due to the favorable exchange rate. You are correct about the falling Canadian dollar. The exchange rate today is about 30% in favor of the U.S. Dollar.
