Our New Hailing Port

It’s official, Makara now hails from Key West, Florida.

Hailing Port Changed

When titling a vessel, you can choose to deal with a state or with the Coast Guard. We chose the Coast Guard thinking we could get away with not paying sales tax on the boat. We thought wrong. If you stay in any state long enough, they will come asking for proof of registration and title. Although we did not have to title it with Florida, we did have to register it with them since we were going to stay here for more than 30 days.

When we bought Makara, it was registered in N. Carolina. We just left it labeled that way until now.
