Wonder if he will speak on how to avoid taxes by docking yachts somewhere than their home country?

Country? Last I checked, RI was in America.
Stale (2010) reference, as usual huck, and it was in dry dock and charter.

Are you even aware of what a Secretery of State does?
And by the way, where is his yacht now?

What do the duties of Sec of State have to do with "docking yachts somewhere than their home country"?(sic)
Your link was a 3 year old article about dry-docking for repair and for chartering out of Newport (which btw, probably would have been a better location for both than in MA). Rhode Island is not in another "country".
The link above states:
" A spokeswoman for Kerry said the senator’s accountant had tried repeatedly to get the tax bill from Nantucket, but couldn’t get a response. The taxes, amounting to roughly $100, were finally paid in full last December, according to Kerry’s office."

So this is all about a $100 tax bill, for not keeping the boat in its "home base of Nantucket".

Let me see if I can explain it so that someone of your limited capacity can understand. The Secretery of State deals with the United State's foreign relations, i.e. other COUNTRIES. Kerry has proven that he knows how to avoid taxes here in the US by docking his yacht in RI rather than Massachusetts. So he would certainly be able to teach other COUNTRIES how to do same.

A) huck, your statement is nonsensical: "Wonder if he will speak on how to avoid taxes by docking yachts somewhere than their home country?", because Kerry did not dock his yacht in another country.

B) although with your walk-through of mismatched analogies, I can not follow your convoluted logic, Kerry was not dry-docking and renting his yacht from Newport to avoid the $100 tax bill from Nantucket (which was not sent to him, and he had to track down), he was doing this because facilities for above activities were better at Newport.

"now follow"

If you think attempting to avoid paying $100 is something premeditated by Mr Heinz, you need to spend some serious time in reality.

Obviously you know absolutely nothing about live shot Kerry...He docked his yacht in RI to avoid paying taxes on docking in Taxachusetts. He had the yacht built in New Zealand at a cost of $7,000,000.00. That's how much he cares about American workers, he had it built out of the country to avoide paying taxes. He's voted to raise taxes every chance he's had. He avoids paying his own at every turn. How can he get a tax bill from Nantucket WHEN RI doesn't have a tax for docking. Fk Kerry...I know him from working for the state of Taxachusetts. You're just another moron who believes in statism.

A $100 tax bill, that he had to hunt down to pay?

If you think avoiding paying $100 is why he docked it in RI, you're a fool. It cost him more money to sail it there.
