PO of my Oday25 had it registered in Maine
. He signed a Bill of Sale
and gave me his copy of registration
Maine is so-called "non title" state. Meaning they don't issue titles just a regular registration
. In my case the problem was that the PO registered on line and his registration was a simple b&w printout of an emailed PDF file and he later misplaced the original Maine sent to him by mail. And MA wanted to see a regular colored "state issued" registration.
Unfortunately since PO already sent a letter to Maine sying that the boat was sold Maine could not re-issue an "original" one. But MA to confirm prior ownership
was asking an official letter from Maine's appropriate office. I went though this last spring and it took me 2 calls to Maine and 2 visits to MA office but eventually the boat was registered in MA after I brought them an orginal letter from Maine registration office (can only be sent to PO who in turn sent it to me) confirming that they don't issue titles and that PO was the PO.
