High seas. You can spend all of your time learning a bunch of bureacratic bullship, or just drop the hook and hope nobody tickets you.

Now with the 90 day thing. So if I leave the state every 90 days is there a mandatory period that I have to stay away? Or is a simple weekend trip to the next state over sufficient?

This is the approach I think I'm going to take, but I would like to be aware of standard rules/regulations.

It depends...some states have a rule if you're in the state for more than 90 days PER CALENDAR YEAR, regardless of whether they're contiguous or not, you have to pay them money. Others are if you are in the state for more than 90 days CONTINUOUSLY.

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.

Now let's say I violate the 90 day law, is the burden of proof on the local law enforcement? I feel like it might be difficult for them to prove I've been there for more than 90 days since I will be anchoring out. With the cruising grounds that I have in mind I doubt this will be any sort of problem. The particular anchorage in question has a good number of grounded abandoned vessels and no one seems to care much.

EDIT: for clarification the vessels mentioned above are abandoned and then ground themselves over several months of slowly dragging their anchors. So the quality of the sea floor for anchoring is not in question.

Have you ever spent time in the US? The burden is always on YOU when the tax man says "Pay up!".

If a dirty bottom slows you down what do you think it does to your boat
