I'm registered in MD. Does that mean that FL is reciprocal w/MD ? Or did you mean only for Fedreally Documented boats?"?

I'm a noob and confused
State Registered in Md means you don't have to worry in Fl. I'm documented and Md.

You are okay on both the registration, and the tax. I do think they might make you change registration to Fl if you are there for more than 90 days, but then you would not have to pay the tax, you already have.
