No insult intended but just because your wife is a lawyer, does not mean she knows all the rules or laws of registering all boats in all states. I've gotten several boats registered and titled in different states w/o titles. There are ways to get things done thru proper channels legally.
Not to mention there are ways to "fudge" certain issues to get the same results.
