There is nothing but constant aggravations be your boat state or USCG documented. If your a live-a-boat your boat is your legal
domicile, regardless of where your situated. We are told by the various states there their reason for boat titles and boat registrations are (1) To make selling or trading, transferring your boat easier. (2.) To discourage theft. (3.) to help law enforcement. Oh really? It is nothing but an aggravation every time you deal with them. No police ever returned my stolen motor
, it is for law enforcement so they can harass you and know if your local citizen or they might not be able to extort you for monies. Please read my post on Boston.
Your boat can be boarded by any authorities; under the new laws, that they believe a terrorist is hiding under your boat. What they are now attempting is to force even USCG documented vessels to pay them excise tax. Just how can you levy tax to a non-citizen who has no rights to vote and whom you have no legal
jurisdiction over? The keyword is "jurisdiction" with any federal authorities; including military having it most anywhere you can imagine. I do have an inquiry in the Massachusetts
Governor's office to inquire "what law in M.G.L." authorizes such a tax? Here on a non-citizen of the state. (I hope get the answer soon) all this for asking for a mooring permit
for a stay of 4 to 6 weeks. I hope the members here will pass this around. If someone has any in depth
info please feel free to e-mail me firstname.lastname@example.org
