Re: How do I get this boat in my name and registered?
If it was USCG documented in 2009 there will be a record, but you will need proof such as a notarized bill of sale that you bought the boat from the owner of record and that all leans have been satisfied. After the boat has been USCG documented in your name then apply for state registration.
The seller may not want to provide a notarized bill of sale if they are not the owner of record.
Find out from USCG who the owner of record was in 2009 then follow the bread crumbs from that point in time to when you bought the boat.
