Minimizing Taxes; Hailing Port

I live in Oregon, A non sails tax state. I have a 38 foot Ingrid, and am going to be moving and using it up in Washington waters. If it is more than 90 days than I will owe a user fee of around 8.5 %. This would be a little over 5,000. For the privilege of spending money in there state, and spending money at Washington Marinas. This is a sore spot for me, I pay very high property taxes and Income taxes in Oregon instead of a sales tax. Why should I be paying them also. I will be leaving my boat mostly in Canada instead. I will keep it in Washington but only a couple months at a time.
