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 
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.
