Re: Boat Title? need help

I just went through this issue in Florida with a boat from Georgia. Georgia doesn't title boats so the seller didn't have one so we had to use a bill of sale. Make sure your bill of sale is VERY descriptive about the boat. I bought a 76 Chrysler 22 and the guy I bought it from only said sailboat and trailer for description. The Tax Collectors office made me track him back down and rewrite the BOS to say White with Blue strip 1976 Chrysler 22 Sailboat Hull ID #...... And we had to write up a separate BOS for the trailer in order to get it registered. I had to remove the boat from the trailer, get it weighed, then bring all those papers to the Tax Collectors office to make it official.
