I phrased that too casually, assuming the context is that of a US citizen bringing in a boat that will be US documented and/or state registered. It isn't just a matter of bringing in a bottom with TBT on it--but being a US *owner* now in possession of TBT for an unlicensed application.
There were some limited circumstances where TBT was still allowed for aluminum hulls/props but my understanding is that even those were being phased out--maybe not for vessels with foreign flags, but for the context we have here, a US citizen owner bringing them in on a vessel that has no exemptions to carry it.

No, I can't site you the current TBT regulations, I just wrote it off once it reached the point of "damn fine stuff but they're gonna own the shirt off my back".
