No. That is not correct. They may TRY to getcha, but unless your boat is actually in that state then they have no legal basis for this and you can righteously tell them to get stuffed.

The hailing port that you choose for CG documentation means nothing. It most certainly does not entitle any state to tax you. Only if you are actually IN that state are they entitled to tax and/or register you.
Go get 'em tiger. But the discussion was/had been when you are in that state and challenged by a state official. Kind of hard to use the defense that you are not actually IN the state when you are tied to a dock attached to that state.

At sea - different story.

Charlie,

A good point. However, to add to that, one should be "armed" with facts. While hard to obtain, a bit of reading these posts and links and understanding what the issues and THE LAWS are is also very important.

So many people back east travel from state to state, in many cases during a simple daysail, that they'd be somewhat obtuse if they didn't spend a Wednesday evening readin' up.

Where I live, I don't have that issue.

But, if I was sailing south to Mexico or north to the PNW, I do a LOT of reading and printing.

There's actually no excuse not to.

"Kind of hard to use the defense that you are not actually IN the state when you are tied to a dock attached to that state. "
I suppose you've never seen them justify the way election districts are mapped. Convincing a judge that "this dock" is in "that state" should be a piece of cake.
