Lee, any time you want to check title, sale, or registration laws, look for the state Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) on the web. If they're not in charge of boats in that state--they'll have a reference to the right department. There's nothing like getting the hard facts from the people who enforce them, to clear things up in a hurry.
And, by the way, NJ has become apparerntly the first state in the US to require proof of proficiency from ANY boater coming into state waters. You need either a NJ boater's card, or one from your own home state. No more exemptions for folks born before a certain date, or just passing through.
