For documented boats in the state of Maryland, they are most concerned with you paying Sales Tax and then you get a sticker "that basically" proves you paid sales tax and that's necessary in lieu of registration...
In Maryland you either need registration numbers or a sticker for documented vessels showing sales tax has been paid.
The state folks routinely peruse my marina looking for boats with out of state registrations, because if Maryland is your primary state of use, then you owe tax to Maryland.
Our tax is 5% based on the value shown on a Notarized bill of sale.
