Some advice re shipping an engine from Canada to the US which I just did.
First, all of this applies only IF the sale price of the engine is LESS than US$200. If it is, then it is exempt from any duties etc. under Section 321 Release rules.
Second, get a copy of US Customs Invoice form and complete it (I can help with that) and in the body of the form below the description, add the note, in big letters, ATTN: US CUSTOMS - PLEASE PASS UNDER SETION 321 RELEASE RULES.
That rule exempts things with less then US$200 value from duties since it costs more to process than can be collected.
Then, becasue you are trying to bring an engine into the country, you will need a copy of the US Environmental Agency Engine Declaration Form. This is a two page form of dense type that asks about the engine.
In the first section, check off box G. In the second section check off box 9 and in the forth section check off box 17.
On page two, fill in the approximate date of manufacture and the company name, sign, print name and date and fill in the Importer and Owner box with your own name.
Last, contact R&L Trucking, 800.543.5589 and get a quotation. Their prices are very reasonable and they are friendly to casual customers. After you get a quote ask for an international person and FAX the forms to that person.
I just arranged for a 150 lb. shipment from Windsor, ON to Albany, NY for $143.04 for delivery to the trucking company terminal where I will pick up the engine.
Not too bad overall and certainly not much hassle.

Unless something has changed you can claim marine engines under agriculture. Fishing is in that catagory. The last time I brought one across the border the customs agent had me do it that way. No charge! Thanks sir (who ever you were)
