Chall....if the boat is already registered previous owners will be available from the registrar. I know this is the case down here and in UK and any Commonwealth or ex Commonwealth countries, I'm presuming it is the same in the USA .

As for registering a boat that has no previous registration I believe there is a way around this. Go have a look at the AMSA web site or give them a call. They are exceptionally helpful.
