Closing Costs?

Just a quick question regarding the purchase of a boat. What sort of additional costs are often associated with buying a sailboat? I live in FL so information pertinent to that state is most sought after but all is appreciated.
Basically I am wondering if there are any sort of registration costs or transferring of ownership or anything else that you could overlook in planning (besides a survey) to buy a boat.
Also, Do most of the marinas in FL require you to have some sort of insurance to stay at/in their docks/marinas?
Anything that could offset the closing costs is what I am after. I am trying to make sure I do not have any unforeseen surprises so if I am missing something please enlighten me.
