Don't know about the reporting, but my excise/use tax on my boat is less than you're paying in registration fees.

I did not have to pay sales tax in RI, since they have none on boats. I do pay $300 per year in registration fees instead. Of course, it will be roughly 100 years before that breaks even.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
