The current owner never transferred the title as he lives overseas and didn't know if he was going to sell the boat or sail it home. He scanned and emailed me a sales contract from himself to me as well as an example letter for me to use too get the title canceled in Florida so I could start the process of getting the boat registered in Canada. I have emailed the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles 2 days ago asking them what I need to do in order too get a letter of cancellation for the boat title from their system but have yet to hear back from them. If I don't hear from them today I will have to call them.

I almost started a thread about the whole process but thought I had started enough threads in the last week and didn't want to irritate anyone.

Guess I will be the proud owner of an expensive hole in the water in the next couple days.
