Registering boat no regi?

Postby Buffleheadhunter » Tue Dec 03, 2013 8:27 am

Just picked up a little duck boat and need to register it so I can put my 6hp on. Gentleman I bought it from couldn't find registration, he never registered in his name, bought it years ago at the duckboat show and it had a current transferable registration. Long story short I though I had 12' papers so I didn't sweat it, now I can't find them. The boats got numbers is there a way to get replacement title if I don't know who it's registered to? What's my best course of action? It's an old mfg cartopper hull with a blind and deck built on, no hid numbers. Any help would be appreciated.

You can talk to DMV and see..... They can track the hull ID numbers, or you may be able to register it as a homemade boat? Ya gotta call em and see.

Thanks, I was dreading that. My plan for lunch time. Hate dealing with them with boat issues, feel like it's always the runaround, and when I come back the next person plays by a different set of rules. My last boat took 4 trips. That was with papers. I need to get this done by Christmas break as I've got 2 weeks to hunt.
