If you're addressing my post, I didn't mention Florida... just said that MOST STATES WILL COME AFTER YOU FOR TAXES if you're in their waters long enough.
Many states, some counties, and some cities and towns have annual excise or use taxes. They like getting their money, and if you're in their waters long enough—they will try and collect it.

The problem comes in here.
Man "A" buys a boat in Connecticut and is a resident of New York. Buy playing games with the actual location of the boat he can aviod paying sales tax. If you come to Florida or any other state after avoiding taxes then expect to pay.
If your boat is from Maine which has a 5% tax and move the boat to Florida where it resides for more than 100 days then you owe the state 1%. It is fairly simple and straightforward.
this pdf file explains it simply.
Remember there are no Property taxes on boats in Florida so this is a one time hit.

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.
