Documentation

In my experience, documenting a boat these days defrays or avoids no state taxing, as the states have become fairly savvy at sharing info and establishing ''sticker'' registration programs for documented vessels. It may take them a bit of time to catch up with you but, unless you''re out cruising and moving fairly quickly thru each state''s waters, you will ultimately be assessed use tax - and it will apply in the state where you are caught vs. a state of yor choice with perhaps a lower rate.
