The fees would apply to boats that aren’t registered in Maryland, but are state-documented vessels because they are primarily used here.
In government-speak that means we're gonna get every penny we can outta this.

“People recognize the great need for services that these funds provide,” she said. “We want to keep boating thriving and safe in Maryland.”
Evidently they mean to do this by taxing it out of existence.

Free, is the heart, that lives not, in fear.
Full, is the spirit, that thinks not, of falling.
True, is the soul, that hesitates not, to give.
Alive, is the one, that believes, in love.
