Ok - ill let you guy know how i make out - just had a nightmare of getting to the boarder and them wanting to tear the boat apart - that would suck - I asked when I went threw a few week ago and both tellers at the both said the had nevere seen a boat come threw - so I wasnt sure if it raise suspicion.

Last two times I trailered into and out of the USA, the border dudes were more interested in yaking about the boat than actually checking any paper work. Never even asked if I had anything under the cover. Never asked for registration papers, nothing and that was crossing both ways.

I sold my boat 3 years ago to a guy who lived in Canada. He purchased my boat on Saturday after the banks were closed so I could not get him the title. I gave him a bill of sale for the trailer and the boat.
He could not get back into Canada without proof of ownership a bill of sale would not work. He had to drive back to Illinois and go into the bank with me to pick up the titles to the boat and trailer. He then was able to cross the border.

You say you have plates for the trailer but I would make sure you have the boat registion in your name also. Mabey even bring the TITILES for both.

It took this guy forever!!!

The only way I can see this being a problem is if you intended to leave the boat in Canada. Since you are not, doubt they will even check the registration on the CDN side.

When I moved to Ontario from B.C neither side had a problem with me using the better U.S interstate system for my trip.......
