So I have a sailboat in San Carlos.  I have a tired, too small, dinghy and I bought a new (to me) larger, used one.  It is registered in NM under my & my wife's name.  I would prefer to take it down and bring it back for each trip, but someday I may leave it down there also on the sailboat, who knows, make plans and life gets in the way sometimes.....  The old dinghy is listed on my TIP, as well as the small 2.5 HP motor that I no longer want.  
I will also be bringing down a used 6 HP 2-cycle as the new motor.  I don't have any paperwork on that 6HP motor, it was a gift from a friend.  Might want to leave that down in SC on the sailboat.  
Do you think this new (used-but looks new) dinghy and motor can be considered sporting goods and not require a TIP?

What are the ramifications if I trade the old dinghy for coconuts down in SC?  Do they check that stuff when you renew or relinquish your TIP?  What about trading the old motor as well?
Thanks, I really appreciate the help.

How long is the new dingy?  If less than 4.5m or 14.7ft no TIP is required.
Moved your post since it is really not a sales issue.

It is 11 feet. By the way, I posted there because people buying and selling boats most likely have the most reliable information regarding the logistics of TIPs, selling boats, etc. I hope I get some useful information from the general forum.....

Mexico is a funny place, A boat and motor under 14 feet, no problem back and forth, bringing a just a motor maybe a problem. I would say you are good to go.

Good point on the motor. I have previously taken the small motor out and back in, stopping at Aduana and getting a paper showing I am taking it out. They gave me a small problem when I said I won't be back for 6-9 months, but they gave me 6 months and figured I could plead mea culpa if they stopped and asked for paperwork on it. Never had them check though. Any thoughts on the concerns listed on the old, smaller dinghy & motor?

In 6 years the only places that wanted my TIP was marinas. The TIP was never checked for any listed Equipment. ) I know other boats that use them plus other paper work to take parts back north for repair and bringing it back to Mexico. ( I away found, if it looked used no problem coming back down, if it was new I paid taxes)
I know if you do not have one, Mexico can impound the boat.
