Well, it wouldn't cost anything to go talk to one of those folks Spin suggests. There have to be (well, one would think) rules on temporary permits for importing boats. There are for cars. You might go to the Banjericito website and see what you can find. That is how I knew what to do with my car years ago. But the guy you talk to (from the Spin post) should probably have a copy of the regulations that you could translate and read. Or go to the Banjercito office in Pto Juarez and ask questions. But ask all of the questions: 1. I have a car in my name with a temp permit. Can I also have a boat? 2. Can my husband have a car in his name while I have a car in my name too? 3. Can we each have a boat? 4. Can we each have a boat and a car? 5. How do I nationalize a car if it is over 10 years old? 6. Is it still 10 years, and nothing newer, as the NAFTA says different? 7. Re 6, why is this? etc etc etc. Play like you are a Mexican with your kid at Burger King on a Saturday morning. Ask everthing about every single item on the kids menu? Then ask to see one of every toy that comes with them. Then ask if this one toy only comes in red or can you get it in blue. Then ask your kid what he or she wants. When they ask you questions, then you ask the BK employee. Then ask your kid what he or she wants to eat. Or what they want God forbid as this process never ends. Then after you order, change not only the food, but change the manzana to naranja too. Then change the toy. Then get the hell out of my way so I can get my breakfast burrito and a diet coke. AAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH. I think I am going crazy.
