Re: Sailboat under $5000 for Puget Sound
Whether you buy the boat or not in WA you are supposed to transfer the title, pay sales tax (varies by county, but 8-10% is correct), and register the boat in WA. If you are not going to keep the boat in WA (take it to OR after the summer) you would want to title it in Oregon.
