Registration of Used Sailboat

Quick question from Tampa, Florida:

I am the new owner of a 1978 Columbia that is registered until 2013. I have a Bill of Sale and the original title.

Am I required to re-register this boat under my name within 30 days of the sale or do i let it get close to expiration then renew it?

Can't seem to find a clear answer to this particular question.

If florida is like Texas, you need to re-register in your name......that's how the state collects their sales tax

Yup, they want's the money, and it relieves the previous owner of liability.

Oh, and when I last lived in Florida (2004)....they wanted 10% sales tax on boats! So, might want to consider how you handle that before making the registration change.
