Maybe it was

Moons in Scorpio

That took us to that place

That some dream about

 And some don’t have

The capability of imagining,

That place of dancing tongues

And electric eyes

And thighs

Locked and rotating

As if shot

From some distant star.

The BC Government (NDP minority) has a 15% Luxury Tax on values from $125,000.00 to $149,999.00 and 20% on $150,000.00 and up. Currently it applies to automobiles for personal use … not boats, yachts, planes.

The Federal Government (Liberal minority) has proposed a 10% Luxury Tax. With the NDP holding the balance of power this could happen and could be higher.

If you are thinking about buying a yacht it might be wise purchase prior to a Luxury Tax perhaps coming into the mix. If you really trust governments when it comes to taxes and your money I suppose there is no rush.
