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.

Sign up for this e-mag.

Waggoner Cruising Guide - Waggoner Cruising Guide

It is the e-mag version of Pacific Norwesting which stopped publishing the print version a couple years ago.

Look and there is a sign up for the e-mag.

They run ads also which should be of help.

Looks good so I just subscribed.
Thanks again.
