And I just talked to the guy on the phone and he's going back to the auction local and trying to get a new title.

Ya better hurry! It sounds like he's got others interested.................

well, the link isnt working for me, but so far i am missingout a few links... not sure if it is jsut me or not, but oh well..

and I have learned that everyone has someone interested... if he sells it great... good for him.. i am sure there will be another somewhere.

also, i cant tell what the draft is, and as it is a bigger boat then i am used to looking at, i am assuming it is a bigger draft/deeper draft...

It maybe ok and all that, and i am sure i will get used to it.... just sayin...

I am so anxiousto get the eff out of here right now...

the dayghter came back today to help her bf move the refrig and tv, and her bed, but after 1 hour, she is getting all moody and i find out they are texting and they are breaking up... so now she took off to deal with him...

I guess i understand her priorities... one hand-- never seeing her father again, the other hand, a bf that has been on and off again since day one, (Meaning the last 4 months)

oh well... gotta go and get out here and let her figure stuff oiut..

As for insurance, liability is all thats required at marinas (not mine), and you can get it without clear title. I repeat, I believe it's better to have US documentation, and a state registration. Especially if you're leaving the states. Not to leave, but for the return hassle.

Re: How to Find a Title ?

The following is from the USCG National Documentation Center FAQs:
Quote:
IS A DOCUMENTED VESSEL EXEMPT FROM STATE JURISDICTION?

No, all documented vessels must comply with the laws of the state in which they are operated. The vessel's document must be shown to state law enforcement personnel upon their demand. States may require documented vessels to be registered (but not numbered) and to display state decals showing that they have complied with state requirements.
All the FAQs are here: USCG National Vessel Documentation Center, FAQ Page

Re: How to Find a Title ?

Thanks Tao. In a nutshell USCG Documentation is a one time fee with yearly free paperwork updates unless there is a change in name, port, ownership, etc. States charge a yearly registration fee, but are not allowed to title a Documented vessel. It may sound a little confusing, but is understood by most licensing agents in maritime areas, As for the daughter,sorry. Just be thankful you haven't ended up with the children, it changes plans. ha

Re: How to Find a Title ?

Sorry about the child reference, it was pertaining to my own situation. After retiring and raising three daughters, We've been in the system raising 2 grandsons for 3 1/2 years. Still waiting for adoption and having gotten a larger boat we're looking forward to cruising again soon. Sorry if I upset you

If you have USCG documentation then you do not need a state issued title for your boat. Some states--Florida being one of them--will still require you to register the boat even if it is USCG documented. The registration will cost less than $200 per year (that's the cost for something like a 100+ foot boat). You will have to display a registration decal on the boat, but you will not need to display registration numbers.

Actually, having both a state and federal title would be illegal, and displaying state-issued numbers on a USCG-documented vessel is also illegal. Registering with a state, which many states require (whether or not the boat is documented) is not the same thing as titling with the state.
