    Unhappy Title/Registration Issues

    I've read the "what to do before you buy" threads...of course, after the fact! I bought a 94 seadoo with no title. I checked the title history and it was never stolen or anything.
    I live in Florida...is there anything anyone can say that would be constructive to help me out? I'd appreciate anyone's reply.
    Livin' on the edge!! (of insanity)

    Because state laws are different from one to the other, my only advice here is for you to work with the DMV. I've learned in my past experience, be nice, that goes a long way with these people.

    In Alabama, we don't have a title law. I bought a 1991 Wave Runner for $25 bucks. No engine, just the hull. Before I did any work on it, I started the process of trying to register it. I had a lot of foot work to do, but in the end, it seemed, my being patient and nice is what got my registration.

    The lady did a "stolen" check on the Louisiana registration numbers that was on it when I got it and it didn't show up stolen. All she required then, was a bill of sale with at least 3 witness signatures.

    I now have the registration and a newly rebuilt 650 engine in it. I also can prove that it is mine.

    All states have an "abandoned" law or a law that allows you to become the rightful owner after some other obilgations are met. Here, I know if someone parks a car on the side of the road, on my property and leaves it there for like, 30 days, I can put an add in the newspaper, looking for the owner. That shows attempt being made to find the owner. After 30 days, I can apply paperwork at the courthouse to start the process to claim the vehicle.

    So, you'll need to work with your state DMV, because they are all different and unless you get an answer from someone in the state of Florida, it will be irrelevant to your issue..............
    Looking for tips and advice, researched articles on carbs, spark plugs and general maintenance can be found at Snipes Korner. You can also follow me on "Twitter".

    Quality parts at low prices, visit Seadoowarehouse right here in our own forum. Please PM me if you are having a problem finding what you need!

    Is your jet ski fast? Do you want your XP or RXP to stand out? I know a place that has what you need to make it faster. Make your jetsksi a muscle craft, not just the ordinary, standard stock ski.

    Seen my GTX?... Those awesome graphics can be purchased from JetSki Detailing. Tell them Seadooforum sent you.

    Ever wonder what the inside of your 787cc engine looks like. Want to identify the parts, check out my thread on the 787. I'm sure there is something for everyone who want to learn about the internal parts.
