Just to add to what Cotemar said. I'm also a CT Resident. Like anything else know the waters your storing your boat in. Ct happens to tax boats, jet skis, vehicles. Same if I bought a car in RI. Once I return to my state to buy a plate I have to pay Ct sales tax. I know from dealings with a snowmobile that Vt, NH, and Maine don't charge sales tax. However, this advise doesn't help for boats as they make treat these differently.
