Ummm.. your best bet is to call the USCG and ask them exactly what fees you need to pay. If the fees aren't paid properly, it can tie up your paperwork for a good long while. Saw a friend miss one of the $8.00 fees and took three months to straighten it out. That's one reason the documentation services are sometimes worth the extra money.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

I think you have to register in Michigan

Greetings

I'm in Michigan also and I believe that any boat over 19 feet has to be titled and registered in Michigan (and sales tax paid) regardless of whether the vessel is documented or not.

Michigan watercraft registration requirements are located here:

SOS - Watercraft
