NAFTA Certification Document

Postby Clark Little » Mon Jun 08, 2015 2:32 pm

Do you own a PDQ yacht that was manufactured in Canada between 1961 and 2007 and then imported to the USA?
If so, I would be interested in knowing whether you still have a copy of the NAFTA Certification that would have accompanied the yacht when it first entered the USA at Oswego, NY.
Contact me at ve0lit@gmail.com or
519 379 3392 if you can hep me out!!

Appreciate any and all who might be able to assist me in locating a copy of this elusive document for any of the ~125 yachts imported during that time period.

Clinton signed it into law on December 8, 1993; the agreement went into effect on January 1, 1994. Anything prior to that date would be irrelevant.

Oops! Right you are!
That was my mistake.
The first vessel that I am aware of was 32001. She was manufactured in 1994 and at some point imported to the US.

Still looking for anyone who might have a copy of their NAFTA certificate.
Do you know of anyone who might be able to help?

I brought MV 114 into the US in October of 2007. I was told that I needed to have Customs come to Phoenix NY to check the boat and issue an import document. When we got to the Video Phone in Oswego to clear customs, I was told to keep going and this inspection was not needed. Later through the Canal, I received a message from PDQ that I had not stopped and have Customs Come. To make a long story short, I stopped in Albany NY and the nice folks from Customs did in fact come to the boat, did not even look inside, but I do have a certificate from them verifying the boat entered the US on a certain date and was told to hang onto it for inspection when I sold the boat.

Im 200 miles from the boat, but if you need specific info from my form, I will be glad to help.
