    Colorado is a beautiful state to boat in if you decide to register it is cheap & they send you everything you need to your home in Michigan.
    Good luck with your "temporary relocation".

Some states (I believe NJ is one) require local registration if you keep the boat there more than the prescribed number of days. If you incorporate the boat in another state and house it in another, you'll most likely have to register as a foreign corporation operating in that state. Alot of hassle unless you'rer talking about a yacht
    If you do the majority of your boating in a state other than your home state you can register the boat in that state & be perfectly legal. Kansas folks do it all the time. Mostly in Oklahoma or Missouri where you can actually use your boat. If you store your boat in your home state you should register it there, but that is a grey area too.
    My boat is Documented with the CG & I have it registered in MO per the MO laws & I lived in Kansas at the time & now live in Texas. My trailer is registered & titled in Texas & the boat in Missouri.

    Off the Virginia Game and Inland Fisheries Website

    Documented Vessels
    Vessels documented by the U.S. Coast Guard cannot be titled in Virginia. Though there is no requirement that documented vessels be registered, owners may register them if desired. The registration decals may be useful if traveling to another state that requires display of registration decals. Contact the Department for an application or use the application provided at this site and prominently write "Documented Vessel" at the top.

    Same for SC, according to the DNR boaters registration department.
