What's worked for me is to offer the cop, thug, or concerned citizen a beer and 99% of the time all was well.

I know it is the same in Fla and probably most other states. Just like a motor vehicle, if the vehicle or boat is not registered in the state it is in, it must be registered or taxed there in some fashion. Fla calls it a "use tax".
A lot of college students get their cars caught by this one if they go to an out of state college.
Prepare to pay anywhere outside your home state if you are leaving your boat for an extended period.

You have rats on your boat ? Tell them a story, they'll leave

The hysterical laughter you hear as you drive a way in your"new" boat ..... is the seller.

Here in Washington you only have so much time before you're required to register your boat here.

Re: Stay out of Georgia

"A lot of college students get their cars caught by this one if they go to an out of state college."
At the traditional private campuses, where the cars are parked on campus on private property, I've never heard of that being an issue. Of course in recent times college "residency" as a matter of voting rights and other things has changed in various states, but then you've also got varying state laws that require local registration and taxes after 90 contiguous days, OR 183 days in any calendar year, OR...a rash of other options.
Not surprising that as more students want to have their "residency" at their college address, the states would pursue their taxes as well.
