If the boat is registered in La there will be no taxes on boat but if registered in another state La will charge taxes on boat.
I would take it one step further and make a separate Bill of Sale for the trailer. This may sound silly but I have seen the DMV add taxes that don't belong. www.expresslane.org
has a blank Bill of Sale that you can print out. Also, the buyer (if a Louisiana resident), will need a copy of your drivers license to register the trailer in his/her name. Make sure all documents are signed IN FRONT of a Notary, not before you get to one.
After the sale and prior the the boats departure, remove the license plate then, go to www.expresslane.org
and officially remove your name as owner of the trailer.
