I agree on both counts with what Bob advises. I used Sealand Industries to
bring Alianna home form the USA and the papers you get from the "border
broker" are real handy 6 years down the road when I registered my boat and
the province came checking for proof of taxes paid.

Should you purchase this boat and decide to have it trucked to NS, a few
things to consider:
1. I used Sealand Industries (I have coordinates) from Chester.....you
will be hard pressed to hire a better professional to transport your
boat. If he is already in the area of your boat, you might obtain a
better price than him simply going to get it.
2. Some, maybe all, truckers will insist you hire a 'border broker'....I
did, it cost me $125....he took care of all of the paper work and taxes
at the border.....have coordinates on this as well.
