I just bought from a family
friend does not have the title. He is the original owner and does not ever remember having one but it has been 35 years so who knows. The boat
is Documented with the USCG and I already sent the forms in to switch the documentation
The boat per Rhode Island
law (not sure if this is true in other states) also has to be registered with RI but you don't have to display bow numbers.
What agency do I have to contact in order to obtain a new title?
To stem off comments/concerns about legitimacy of sale
or something shady by the PO not having the title. I've known these people since I've been born and trust them more than some of my biological family
. So if there is other paperwork or documentation
needed it will be very easy to work
with them to get it.
