    Current registration is all that is required.

      Plus one with Jas. However, be sure you have something like this http://www.canadiantire.ca/en/pdp/fo...-0798598p.html

      They can get kind of serious if you don't have one with you in the dinghy. Like $250(cdn) serious. I got one at Dicks for less than twenty bucks but that was eight or nine years ago.

        While it is a good idea to carry, it is not required for a US registered boat in Canada for a short time.

        See this:

        https://www.tc.gc.ca/eng/marinesafet...sitor-1610.htm. "Foreign pleasure craft (pleasure craft that are licensed or registered in a country other than Canada) need to comply with equipment requirements of the country in which the vessel is usually kept."

          At most you will be asked for your paper registration for the dinghy...not likely though. No difference towing the dinghy from having it mounted.

            FWIW we cross at least 5 times a year and tow our dinghy (wa registered) and I have never been asked for paperwork on it

              Thanks for the correction Rider. There was a situation quite a few years ago now, with one of our club members getting a heavy fine for not having the equipment. But, like I said, it was quite a few years ago.

                When the rule first went into effect there was a lot of misinformation going around, including the authorities. I believe that this has since changed.

                  It might be a good idea to carry a copy of Canadian laws regarding equipment needed by a visiting boater.

                  I have had my tender checked several times now and they want to use Canadian require laws.

                  Many OPP officers don't seem to know the laws for visiting boats. I just comply with Canadian laws to avoid a problem.

                  I have never been questioned about the mothership.

                  If I were we would have a discussion about Canadian requirements for (I believe) 12 up to date flares.

                      We were at anchor at Sidney Spit couple of years ago. Canadian CBP in a big rib came up to us and asked for our paper work. Plus they checked our dinghy which does have a current Canadian 'dinghy' kit, bailer, tow rope etc. Very friendly and don't think we'd have been in trouble if something was missing.

                        Do Canadian boat equipment laws apply immediately on entry or after 45 days in Canada? Since we sometimes stay over 45 days, I equip my boats to meet both counties laws immediately.
