Hi there. I purchased a 1971 Ericson 29 in Portland Oregon and brought it up to Washington where I live and will be keeping it. Well I went to the licensing agency with my title and bill of sale which reflected the price I paid for it. Well apparently the tax they want to charge is not based on what I paid for it but rather the value of the boat. The problem is that they did not have the value of the boat so they told me that I need to have a survey or get a letterhead from a dealer to show a value. Well I am not paying for a survey cause that costs to much money and I tried to find a value online but had no luck. Is there anyone that can help me or steer my in a direction to get a formal letter stating a value. Thanks.
