Does the state of Alabama have boat titles or bill of sale.

Thinking about buying a boat from a marina, they claim Alabama doesn't have boat titles, only bill of sale. Does this sound bogus to anyone else or as m I just paranoid? Is a bill of sale OK?

Not bogus. Alabama does not title sailboats.

Some say a bill of sail only can be an issue outside of the US, because they rarely see that and they typically don't look as official as a title.

I had this only, but now I'm titled and registered in Florida. A no hassle process with title issued on the spot.

Alabama DMV says no boat titles. But must be registered with the Alabama Department of Natural Resources.

Yes, bill of sale and registration. Didn't think to mention registration as I thought that to be a given in order to collect sales tax. Annual renewal was $85 per year for me.
