Already you are becoming the salt
of the earth......
I bought a German flagged boat in the Caribbean
. The owner had to deflag the boat, so that I could register the boat in Ca. The boat has never seen Ca., so I didn't have to pay any taxes
to Ca. I didn't US Document the boat, so I did have to pay a 1.5% tax while entering the US. If I had taken the boat to Ca. with in 6 months I would have had to pay state tax. Get all your information before the purchase
, and you may be able to avoid some taxes
