Re: Question for world cruisers

US state registrations for boats (or motor vehicles) usually apply to "vessels in the navigable waters of...for more than xx days..." so depending on your state law, the age of the vessel, etc. you may or may not need to update the registration within 30-180 days once you return to a US state. There may be additional complications per each state but generally, if it is not in state waters at all, it is not required to be registered in that state.
