I will be pulling my Macgregor 26 from Canada through Yuma to San Carlos in November. I was planning on driving through Lukeville AZ. but do not know if I can get a TIP there. I was thinking of going into San Luis to get our Visitor visa and Boat TIP then drive through Lukevile with boat, or is it best to drive through Nogales? Do I need proof of Mexican Liability boat insurance to get TIP?I have read that you can get your permit online? Is that the way to go? Also do I need a vehicle tip if I am only driving to San Carlos?A lot of questions .... please help.Ric

Looking at Google Maps, your best routes are going to take you through Nogales, which will be easier towing a boat.  You have plenty of time so get your boat TIP online before you leave Canada.  Then you only need to get your Tourist Cards at KM21 south of Nogales.  You do not need insurance on the boat to get a TIP, but will need at least liability coverage to launch it at either marina.
here is the link to get a TIP online:
https://www.banjercito.com.mx/registroVehiculos/#
Choose Ingles at upper right to see the site in English.  You can request the permit 10-60 days prior to entering Mexico.  Allow at least 10 days for processing and to receive your documents before you leave Canada.

If you do online you will already have the sticker for the boat. You just need a tourist card for the boat to be legal. Don't think you need a TIP for the truck but maybe someone else can answer that.

If you aren't going south of San Carlos you won't need a TIP  for the vehicle, just insurance.  I use BajaBound.com, a San Diego outfit, and they issue policies online for ACE Seguros (a Mexican carrier).   A tourist visa (FMM 6 month) is all you need for yourself, the boat needs a TIP, and you're good to go.  (Oh, yeah -- a smile and some Spanish goes a long way.)

If you plan to work on the boat or bring other gear down later, take a look at the clubcruceros.net website discussion of Aduana (Customs)  procedures for importing parts.
