    If a NYS resident you're liable for use tax even if you paid a sales tax at the state you bought the boat. NY will usually give you credit for the sales tax you paid.
    The important thing is, NY's use tax is due the moment you enter NY waters even 10 years after the purchase! There are no time limits.

    Beware, NY will collect. Don't ask me how I know.

    Oh yes. It was a suggestion I picked up from a CG instructor who's a charter Captain on the side; or is that visa versa. I added a few other points like drinking your own beer, unless offered by a member of the crew. Personal issues aside (like no street shoes), safety and informational issues are extremely important as each boat is different and pertain to both the experienced boater as well as the newbie. I can post a copy if you wish.

    My pleasure. I have learned a lot from the incident, and if others can learn from it, too, all the better. They say my boat will be ready on Tuesday, so I plan to continue my cruise Wednesday morning, weather permitting.

    15 lb! That is very dense, nice. Did the foam reps tell you to go with that? I thought you were using 10lb. Makes sense for a mast step though. Glad it worked out.
    Feel free if you have any more questions on laminating or painting...

    Looks great! Did your yard find the foam easy to work with? I find it much easier to fit than most anything else, makes the job go faster. Nice to see they appear to be properly masking everything off to keep your boat clean. Good looking layup too. Hope you are happy with the result!

    How'd it go? Any pics?

    It was in Ocean Navigator, July/Aug. 2004 and there wasn't much analysis of the problem, more on the fix. In one of the pictures it looked like a hard point along a stringer, near the bottom of the boat, forward of the keel.

    Title of the story was "cracked hull at sea, how a quick repair saved the boat".

    No problem! Just trying to help out my fellow boaters. I think you'll find it'll work out great for you. You'll probably be surprised by how dense 10lb is, 5lb is much easier to work with. 10lb might be better for a step tho, just in case. Have fun! And remember, peace of mind is priceless.
