The issue isn't really plate or no plate but more incorrect plate. I do not believe you can hang a an incorrect plate in the same location that a legal plate would go. It is misrepresentation. I would check with your secretary of state office or google it.

Personally I think you plate is the correct one for this boat and trailer, but what do I know I have rivetitus...

Driving through a State that requires trailer plates, without having one attached almost guarantees that you'll get stopped. Whether or not you get cited depends a lot on the individual officer and how your initial interaction goes. Years ago I was a PO in Massachusetts (...which tends to be pretty inflexible about this sort of thing). I would have let you go if you could show me a copy of the statute that showed you were in compliance in your home State, but warned you that I probably wouldn't be the last guy who stopped you.

Your trailer looks great by the way. The tag is a nice touch.
