boat titling

4 posts in this topic

I'm trying to purchase a used boat. the seller applied for duplicate titles. Last wednesday he received the title on the trailer and a registration card for the boat, but no boat title. My question is. In minnesota is the trailer the only thing titled? I need get this figured out soon as the loan terms expire soon. Thank you all.

Depending on the age of the boat, if it has a motor and is 16' or longer it is titled. I had a 16' 1983 Lund that only had a registration card, but my next boat a 16' 1992 Alumacraft was titled. Somewhere in those 9 years the DNR started issuing titles.

I have a 1985 Lund S-16 Delux that I just bought this January. The boat itself did not have a title, it only had a registration card, just like your situation. The trailer, however, did have a title, and I had that switch to my name. When you go to the DMV to switch the title, you need to bring the registration card for your boat, and get it registered in your name, and you will get issued a card just like the one you received for the boat. I think you will also have to change the #s and letters on the side of the boat.

To be 100% sure call the DNR Licensing Office and give them the hull number (or reg number) they will be able to lookup their records and be sure there is no title for the boat.

    • Moved my fan today  cut heat up time in half very noticeable improvement 
    • Well, she's still right, you know..
    • Went out pheasant hunting today and ran into a trapper setting 330s along a creek for beaver .  I'm not much into trapping but know how these things work, and after having a civilized conversation with him his were all in the water and he let know where they were located so at least the pooch wouldn't get his leg caught in it. don't feel bad, he hasn't caught much either . 
    • That may be, but it sounds a lot like "I didn't get a job" butthurt.  That grifter would be singing the praises of Trump's genius if she was on the payroll.   Eh, why not?  When they aren't taking credit for things they had nothing to do with, they are taking blame for things they had nothing to do with. Pence is still the governor of Indiana
    • sounds like from animals that eat meat. 
    • Huh?  Sorry,  I should have known better.
    • Great idea, have you looked into what it would take? 
    • I think what fish meant was it might not hurt to allow more than 60 days for a season in states like MN.   When the birds are late we can still have a chance at the northern birds.  If freeze up and the flights are early, the longer season won't matter.  There won't be much if anything to shoot.   I get what you're saying about lengthening the gap, but that's a roll of the dice since we have little chance of knowing when freeze up will get those late birds moving.  How long do you make the gap?   After a year in my new area of the state I can adjust my expectations and chase more wisely next year.  This year I was anticipating much better.  I think that's the worst part - the big push being the big let down.
    • Wool socks are a must, they insulate even if wet. Cotton socks in any warm boot will make your feet cold. The warmth of the boot while you are active make your feet sweat. I have the LaCross Iceman from a couple decades ago, still no need to go buy something different.
    • Some wild meat can have trichinosis.  Domestic pork no longer has it. I'm pretty sure that venison doesn't have a parasite issue.
