Foreign documented vessels resident in US
My wife and I recently bought a USCG documented vessel in CA. She is not a US citizen, so we can't document it. However, we can document it in New Zealand (I'm a dual-citizen, and she's resident there). Our other option is to register it in California.
Are there any limits to how long we can remain in California as a foreign vessel? If not, are there any other disadvantages (like getting hassled by the Coast Guard on a regular basis)?
