Here's the story; I bough a 33'hinter from a guy. We exchanged money
at the DMV in Jacksonville Florida
. The dmv lady told me that I can change the title to me or go to the coast guard and register it there federally. So I decided to do the Oast Guard registration
later. We spoke hands and left. 5 years later I still haven't registered the boat
and we moved and I lost
all the paperwork the previous owner gave me and I can't get in touch with the guy. Phones disconnected, doesn't live at the addresses on file. So am I stuck with a boat
that I can't register? It would seem to me there has to be a way to straighten it out? The guy was the legit owner. When at DMV Imsaw his license
and paperwork and the dmv lady said it was al legit. Now Florida
has no record
of the hull
numbers now what?
And lawyers or anyone been in this situation?
I know I should have registered it right away.
