In most of Maine there is little or no enforcement of registration/documentation. There are also many documented boats so unless the harbor master in Rockland is enforcing the letter of the law you won't have a problem. When you are cruising you will just be another tourist boat and won't have an issue if your New York paper work is current and you don't change the hail port on your boat to a Maine location.
Documented boats are not state registered in Maine but they do have to pay excise tax, which won't be over $100 or so.
