The worst that is going to happen is that the state of Maryland, up against the ropes due to funding constraints, is going to 'assess the present value' of the dink and 'allow' you to pay the current sales tax on that assessed value.

So prepare for such and find comprehensive documentary evidence (newspapers, ebay, craigs list, etc.) of the current selling prices of same/similar and same AGE of used dinks. .... and be sure to take that documentary evidence along with you. If you do not, the tax collectors will simply guess (obviously in their 'fair share' favor) as to the value and most probably try to 'get away' for taxing you as if this were a brand new dink with MD sales taxes unpaid. Do your careful homework to develop this comprehensive and exhaustive pricing list evidence, ... or the tax people will err overwhelmingly in their favor, not yours, when taxes are to be extracted from rich boat owners.

I would call DNR as you don't have a MCO/title. I used the same exact process for registration in NY. They didn't blink when i showed up without title. Just filled out another form, paid up and was on my way.

re: Dinghy Registration Dilemma - MD

If you go to the MD DNR and do not get a satisfactory response, my advice is to try going to a different DNR location or waiting a few days and going back to the same DNR and hope to get a different official.

I went bonkers this past fall and winter trying to get a MD state sticker for the USCG documented vessel I had purchased. Everytime I went to the DNR I got a different person who told me a different story about what forms I needed, and none of it matched the requirements on the DNR web site. My friend, who was going through the same process, went to a different DNR location, got still a different story, and had to jump through far fewer hoops than I did with the Annapolis office.

I must admit that this was my first reaction as well. I thought to myself "self, if it were me I would SELL it to my neighbor for a FAIR price on a handshake, then purchase it from him for the same FAIR price with a bill of sale."

I know, that is bad bad bad bad... This is why I could never be a politician, I don't look good in orange.

re: Dinghy Registration Dilemma - MD

Why do you not go back to the guy you bought the boat from and ask him to give you a notarized bill of sale? I have done this a couple of times here in NC. If the PO is no longer around or you cannot find him explain that to the MD Reg folks and submit Hull ID I have done that before as well. Good luck

That may be true in some states but not in Maryland. If there is any mechanical propulsion, including an electric trolling motor, it needs to be registered.

Question re: Dinghy Registration Dilemma - MD

That is true, but it is not used as a boat, it is used as a tender to the boat, for going from boat to shore, and back. As I said that was 'MY' understanding and "I HAVE MISUNDERSTOOD MANY THINGS IN MY LIFE"! Couldn't hurt to ask about that point?

Same in Florida...the politicians need to get theirs before we can enjoy a 2 hp engine pushing a 7 foot piece of plastic through the water
