I don't know how the boat sold as a documented boat with a lien still on it. The purpose of USCG documentation is to prevent that from occurring. The lien may no longer be valid, but you really do need to find out what the status is. When a boat sells, it is generally a requirement of the sale that the boat's title be free and clear of all liens, and this is pretty standard verbiage in any P&S contract for a boat. If the boat has been sold twice since that lien was placed, it is likely, but not certain, that the lien has been cleared.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
