A buddy of mine tried to apply for a boat title and trailer title which is how you register an old title-less jon boat and trailer for the first time. He was asked for a fee of $465, which he politely declined. Didnt sound right to me, I did something similar 5 or 6 years ago and it was no where near that cost.
Things got worse when I recently received my annual trailer registration renewal in the mail.
Here is the 2019 renewal I saved from a year ago.
Could it have possibly gone up $100 in 1 year? I'm hoping this was just a typo. I haven't gone in to renew and get my sticker yet. This worries me.

Same as always, got a new card and a sticker for the license plate. Bad news is it says it expires next April, so looks like the $118 fee is just for 1 year, for now... A total $100 dollar increase from one year to the next, unreal.

well, you don't have to. Just have to be willing to pay the fee. I've seen on other sites that you can register your trailer in Maine online for like 10 years for $200 (I'm probably off on my fee, but in the ball park). I'm going to seriously consider that option. They welcome out of state applicants with no requirement for in state residency.
