<div class="ubbcode-block"><div class="ubbcode-header">Quote:</div><div class="ubbcode-body">Sen. John Kerry, who has repeatedly voted to raise taxes while in Congress, dodged a whopping six-figure state tax bill on his new multimillion-dollar yacht by mooring her in Newport, R.I.

Isabel - Kerry’s luxe, 76-foot New Zealand-built Friendship sloop with an Edwardian-style, glossy varnished teak interior, two VIP main cabins and a pilothouse fitted with a wet bar and cold wine storage - was designed by Rhode Island boat designer Ted Fontaine.

But instead of berthing the vessel in Nantucket, where the senator summers with the missus, Teresa Heinz, Isabel’s hailing port is listed as “Newport” on her stern.

Could the reason be that the Ocean State repealed its Boat Sales and Use Tax back in 1993, making the tiny state to the south a haven - like the Cayman Islands, Bermuda and Nassau - for tax-skirting luxury yacht owners? ...</div></div>

I guess taxes are for the little people to pay. (http://bostonherald.com/track/inside_track/view.bg?articleid=1269698)

Aside from the wiggling to get out of paying taxes, in a time when jobs are scarce in our country, I wonder why he chose to outsource the building of his boat to another country.

It certainly wasn't to support his union base.

Beyond that ... I'd bet the carbon footprint of the boat is pretty close to the carbon pawprint of Bo the first dog.
