I'm looking for info, or references, on bringing a used sail boat purchased in Mexico into the US.  How long do I have to wait re taxes, does it matter which state it's registered in, which state I berth it in, etc.

Since a boat is not real estate I moved your thread. You have an interesting problem and first time I've heard this one.

First question is where was the boat built?
Was the boat ever registered in the USA?
Are you going to return to Mexico with the boat in the future?
What state do you live in?
Depending on the answers, you may find it cheaper and simpler to document the vessel with the US Coast Guard.
Assume it is on a trailer. The trailer, if any, will need to be registered and titled in a state. In AZ, small trailers can be permanently registered.

You will need to talk to customs and border protection on import documents and procedures. See https://www.cbp.gov/ for contact info.

Coast Guard Documentation is at http://www.uscg.mil/nvdc/

I live in AZ, my choice for a first visit to the US would be CA. The boat was built in the US, and does not have a trailer, it's 43'.  The documentation will be in the US, with USCG papers.

Are you going to sail it to the USA? If so, you need to visit customs at first port of entry, probably San Diego. May not need to do anything with USCG documentation in advance and you can do that online.
