Well it is a home as per tax laws as far a mortgage interest is concerned. In certain sates you pay property tax on all "personal property" including boats as I mentioned NH is one of those states so they do pay property tax yearly on boats.
It could be that the tax base changed because the power Co. defaulted, upping everyone's taxes. When a large taxpayer goes away, somebody has to pay the bill.

Yes, and it will only get worse as I know several people already planning on walking away from there houses, as they were barely able to pay as it was.

Only two manias left in town that allow year round live aboards. I think they will do whatever they can to get the extra revenue in the off season.
....I wish i can find a marina like that in New york....preferably on long Island....
