I think if you go back and look at my OP, you'll see I qualified that statement w/ even if you aren't there more than half the year.

I've read of a few court cases involving this and basically the states took a very aggressive position of what constituted "Domicile". Personally I think we'll see more of this as states face budget issues.

I doubt I would go the St. Brendans route unless I am w/o a house and off cruising full time; don't want to live in FLA and wouldn't want the hassle of "proving" I was a FLA resident.

Of course the other option is to just not own anything (cept the boat of course) and keep moving! Then they can't catch ya!
