If I had to guess, I would say it is against the law to lie to the cops.
What I was referring to is the law you're breaking by not registering your vessel in Florida after being here 90+ days.
You can't make the claim of being a 'law abiding cruiser' and then admit to breaking the law. One contradicts the other, I don't care what generation you are. Just because you haven't been caught doesn't make it legal
. You haven't been caught because the law is difficult to enforce, which you proved by lying to the cops.
It's fine with me if you want to run the risk, but as you infer, if in fact your vessel is considered an antique by Florida statute, I'm willing to bet the fine for not registering would pay for many years of antique vessel registration.
So what's the point?
