Re: Buying boat/trailer with no title. Easy to get?
re-constructed and homemade trailer now must be put through a certified trailer inspection shop, fill out a form, have 4 pics taken, and get a notary to send it in, but only Harrisburg can issue the title, causing often a considerable wait. There are those who circumvent this law, but you won't catch me doing it because the fine, if caught, can be quite steep. Cost to legally do this process usually runs around $75 on the average.
Small boats that have a registration, you'll need the registration card if from PA, or, if you buy it from out of state, a title if that state uses them, or a bill of sale. It's hard to get a registration for an old boat that never had one, but it can be done. Easiest all around is to only buy that which is properly registered and titled if applicable.
I gotta go agitate the techies!
