Got a old boat and trailer from my boss who had it sitting at his house for 12yrs. Needed lots of tlc and the trailer needed to be rebuilt. Here's my problem... The guy my boss bought it off of has since passed on. He never got a title for the trailer. Had a search done and it came back with nothing. The lady told me I'd have to get a death certificate and find someone from the guys family to get a title? But nothing came back on the search? Then, last week a guy told me he just bought a boat and trailer off of ebay and the guy didn't have a title for either one. Notary in newport told him since it was older than 1991 she could just issue him a new title for both. My boat is a 1976. Newport is a good drive for me but I'd really like to take that sucker out on a lake somewhere before summer's out. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Sorry for the long msg.
