Re: Question for world cruisers

I believe that if a boat is documented you do not need to keep the registration current if you are out of the country. Most states only require registration after you have a documented boat in the state for a certain length of time. So you should have that amount of time to do it. I don't remember what the time is, I think it is like 60 or 90 days. So the first question is not going to be "may I see your registration" it will be let me see proof that you are a citizen, and this boat is yours.
