What's involved with import from Canada to US?

Used boat with trailer from Canada to California.
Appears to have late model Suzuki 4 strokes.
Thanks.

I brought in a new boat; but the seller did quite a bit of (ok, damn near all) of the import stuff.

Check with the DMV as to what you'll need to do to register the vessel (don't forget about the trailer as well); as to the actual importation, there's this:

Hope this helps;

I was lazy when I purchased a bunch of part for my Zodiac. I used these people and they did all the custom work for me. I don't think it was that expensive.

Jason;

Parts are pretty straightforward, tariffs and taxes notwithstanding.

I think Zip is wondering about importing a vessel, which gets a little hairy with the registration, coding (has to meet USCG specs) and all that crap.

How's the boat running? Haven't heard a report in a while.

Take the engines and tubes off and import it as a bunch of parts

I assume it's running well, sure looks good sitting in my front yard. It hasn't been out in months, the weather has sucked. Crazy wind, 40+ every week. The wind finally died down and now we have a 12' swell coming in today.

Sounds like the makings of a surf trip!

Well, I suppose that'd work for the "getting it into the country" part; the registration would be a little sticky though:

Different bills of sale? People put boats together all the time.
