Eg.: If your state has NO sales taxes, then when you bring your documented boat to MD you then pay the full MD sales tax, and then pay for the 'use tax' ... each and every two years 'after' the year that you pay the MD sales tax.
I don't think this is correct. My understanding is you pay the excise tax once either when you buy the boat or bring it into MD waters. IF you have your vessel USCG documented, then pay for the documented use decal ($10 every 2 years vs $24 for state registered boats). The form has a block to check for just the decal. Who can afford to pay 5% of the value of thier boat every two years?

Its not clear if the new registration fees will apply to documented boats or not. If they don't, its a huge loophole I expect many people will exploit.

My assumption was the required decal fee's were going up for all boats in MD.
