You learn something every day. I brought my new boat home yesterday from North Carolina, so today I had to go to the County Clerk's office to pay the taxes so I could register the boat. Did you know our boat trailers require a licence plate for a one time fee of $92.50??? That was a surprize! They kept my Statement of Origin on the trailer, and will be mailing me a Tennessee title on the trailer. Yet another opportunity for the state to get more of our hard earned money. I've owned several boats over the years, and have never had a plate on my trailer. Passed many officers...never ticketed or stopped. Oh well. Just thought I'd mention this, since I never see a plate on a boat trailer at the ramp.
