Sorry, you technically do and it really pisses people off. As you noted, however, most states only require it after you've "used" the boat in their state for an extended period of time and typically only ask for any excess in their rate over what you already paid another state, if their is an excess. How long that time period is will vary greatly by state.

I'm told, in Massachusetts, the marinas are required to report any vessel that remains on their dock/mooring for more than two weeks. That probably gets the ball rolling to see if you trip their actual use tax period. I'm not sure what that is exactly.
