It is scientifically proven that sailors who keep their boats in a state's waters but fail to pay the proper tax to the state treasury are twice as likely to find themselves aground in a channel that has not been dredged for many years because..... drumroll please.... the state is short on funds to do the dredging in part because sailors who keep their boats in a state's waters have failed to pay the proper tax.

Paying a tax like this isn't much fun, but sailing is.

Enjoy not running aground. Its more fun to watch other people do so.
