I wonder if it would be easier to register out of state and then transfer title when its already in your name?

Why not just keep the title in a different state? Would it matter if the title was in my name? I think there are rules about "longer than 90 days" has to be registered in the state the boat is most used. I get away with titling my sleds in WI because I ride mostly in WI. But i bet you are right. It might just be easier to title in another state. I mean who is going to know your not just a traveler?

I have my boat and sled registered in WI as I exclusively ride the sled in WI (MN 55 mph speed limit) and do the majority of my boating in WI as well. I used to store both boat and sled there, but keep them both in MN now.

Oh great....what all will I need to gather. I have sales contract, titles and registration all signed by the original owner.

Getting trailer plates was a breeze on the other hand.

Nothing else, that should be it.

Yes, trailer plate, title document and plate sticker...went to DMV and was in and out in 10 minutes.

Some people do that. My boat was owned and registered in KS but the title was from OK. The previous owner explained it to me and I half paid attention, but by that point I was checking out the boat to complete the sale and it was shiny. I am distracted by shiny.

I would recommend sending in snapshots of the engine serial number and a pencil rub of the HULL ID including the two letters just outside of the line. Maybe even send multiple pencil rubs and multiple photos and one photo of the vessel. I printed them on printer paper and sent it all in.

Just for good measure.

As for the trailer you can just take that into the DMV and you shouldn't have any issues getting tags and title.

Lucky you. I bought my boat in MI and towed it back to VA. MI dealer told me they don't title the trailer seperately like we do in VA. It took me 3 trips to DMV just to get tags for the trailer. During the last trip the teller pulled out a dusty old book in order to find the MI title laws. I told her that she can go online like I did and get the info. You should have seen the look she gave me.

If you're distracted by shiney, what do the hips on the new boats do to you?

I used to live in IL as well. Except Lake Michigan, and Chicago, there is nothing I miss about IL.
