I just helped a friend find and buy a 2003 Master Angler 17. He is a "blue water" captain, running a privately-owned custom sport fishing yacht. His home is in North Carolina, he's in Annapolis for the summer, but will be in SFL at Merritt from September through December. Question: what are the pro's and con's of doing the paper work (title and registration, etc.) here in Florida versus North Carolina? Can he use my home port for those purposes, or does he have to have a local address?

Boats by law are required to be registered in one's home state

If the boat is in Fl for more than 90days one needs to pay a registration fee and place the FL decal on the hull but you keep the NC registration numbers..so just do it right the first time

The states have gotten wise about registrations and trying to beat the taxes.

Follow the law it is not worth the aggravation
