Chuckles-
"How exactly would they put a lien on a boat that doesn't have a state registration on it,"
Who needs a lien? Under admiralty law, you physically "arrest the boat" and literally nail the lien notice to the main mast while "arresting" the boat by physically chaining it to the dock.
One hopes that they'd use scotch tape instead of a nail these days, but, you know, tradition!

Re: new California tax?

I was hoping they'd just a pop rivet, but a nail would be easier.

I was speaking more towards enforcing it.

Re: new California tax?

What, the CHAIN part isn't enforcement? They can it, and if no one pays, they auction it. You cut the chain, and they'll bill you for a new chain, too.

Cali isn't the only state that has a property tax. Some have it on personal property, some have it on business inventory AND business property. Taking inventory on January 1st is pretty common, which is why reason why some businesses have end-of-year clearance sales, to get rid of the inventory before it gets taxed.

Bottom line is that it costs money to run a state, the ones that tax less are sometimes more efficient but often simply provide fewer "services".

Re: new California tax?

Easy to cut a chain in the middle of the night and sail off.

"gee officer, I got home at midnight and found a chain laying on the dock. Was it your chain?"

those words won't get spoken when you 110 miles off shore on way to your next hangout.

I'm not saying run from the law, but if you / your boat wasn't there for 90 days, and no intent on being there later - sometimes OOPS is easier than fighting a clerk in a county revenue raiser chair.

Re: new California tax?

chuckles, I don't disagree with you, I just note that "slow speed chase" describes about the fastest a sailboat is going to go.

Of course, if you have a bigger faster one, and can wait for stormy weather and a nearby border with no plans of coming back...

Thta's how all those b-grade women's chain gang movies get started, right? :-)
