Re: Boat Title? need help

Nice. Congrats on the purchase. In Georgia it is the same, if the boat is kept in the state it must be registered here.

Will you be keeping her on the coast?

No, you don't get to just choose whichever state has cheaper fees. If you keep the boat in Florida for more than 90 days then the law requires you to register it with the state. Not sure about Georgia, but most states have some sort of similar rules. You need to register it in the state where you keep it. Where you live is pretty much irrelevant to most states, but there may be exceptions.

Re: Boat Title? need help

The variations in state regulations is problematic. As I recall, the Coast Guard states that a documented boat may not have a title. A state registration is OK. Try and explain that one to some clerk.

Re: Boat Title? need help

Georgia does not title boats. You need a bill of sale, can be had on the DNR website. If you buy a boat that does not have a current registration you will need to either have it inspected, or show some kind of paper trial from the last time it was registered. Can be a headache, I have done that before. Let me know if you need more specifics.
