Re: State Registration of Boats
I think if you expect law enforcement to try to locate your stolen watercraft, then you should have to pay for that service by registering it.
SC will not allow you to register a documented vessel, but you are still required to pay excise tax on it annually. As your 1st and full time home the exemption is pretty fair, dropping the fee for our boat in Charleston County to around $100.00 a year.
