I hope I asked this correctly? I'm new at this, tho I am a Navy Veteran.
None in BC. My only costs, other than fuel, is a gallon of paint every couple of years.
I anchor out, dont pay moorage , nor insurance, nor haulouts, never owned a car, no kids( not that I'm aware of) no ex's, hunt for food, more fun than a supermarket, and I know what I'm eating, heat with free fuel(Wood) .
A boat under 15 tons and under 10 hp needs no registration of any kind in BC.
