    Default WTB jet boat hull

    Must have title. To make a long story short, I built a jet boat right before Hurricane katrina. Well we got 8' of water in our house and I lost all the boat papers I had. Now the Louisiana Dept of wildlife will not register my boat in any way. So I have a boat which I can't use. I'm looking for a 18-20'. I would like to use all my interior and motor out of my jet. Would like something around Louisiana. Thanks

    You cant file for lost title? Reg it in another state. Write up a fake bill of sale and say the old owner lost the title. Get creative.

    Tried that they said no go. Tried doing as a home built, also shot down. Get this I had pictures of the whole restoration and they still would register it.

    Just buy a title off someone who is junking a hull and punch new #s in your hull. There is a way I am sure. I know in CA they want you to send a registered letter to the previous owner to try to obtain a signature and if there is no response you get a title.

    How long is the boat, in MN anything under 18 foot does not get a title. Sell it to somebody you know in MN (fake). Have them register it, and then (fake) sell it back to you with the MN paperwork, and register it in your state.

    Im sure with all the floods in LA there was a shitload of people that lost paperwork. Thats horse shit they wont work with you. I would do like said before. Find a boat that someone wants to junk and put that HIN number on your boat. Screw em.

    crf,

    I can't believe that is happening after all that has already happened from Katrina!

    I would start by calling your state headquarters DMV department, not your local DMV and explain to them your situation. I would keep going up the chain ("can I please speak with your supervisor?") until I spoke with the head of the DMV for the whole state. If you still didn't get an resolution, then I would contact a local, but major TV station, ABC, NBC, CBS, or FOX affiliate and see if they would give the State DMV some negative press over this situation. I'll bet it gets resolved quickly once that happens and without you having to buy another boat or forge some documents.

    Good Luck!

    Yep thems there sum smart suns a biothces at the dmv. In utah(where I am) a boat older than 15 or 20 years(can't remember which one ) the boat is considered " an un titled watercraft" Btw mines an 81. So I go to register it and because its an out of state purchase I need to tow the boat in to inspect the vin/hull #. So we're getting done and her computer bleeps at her and she reads "can't issue title for this watercraft" so I say yep it's too old. She says oh yeh huh? So I say so wtf did I need to tow it in here for then? She says "I guess that doesn't make much sense does it" Sorry for the long read. I won't even go into the trailer part of it. BTW I like NO PU NO BUTTS idea. Get a hull # of a bayliner or sea ray.lol

    So if you showed the dmv the pictures of the rebuild, why aren't we looking at them? Then someone would know what type hull it was and maybe find a better match on the old title. Or we could just look at the rebuild and compliment the work.

    I was working on a write up about the complete resto, at the time I got my responce from the dept. of wildlife here. Kind of put a damper on the mood. I will post some pictures soon. I was told the boat was sunkist, sleekcraft or mantra, who knows. Pics to come. Woould you like pictures of the house after the storm too

    I like this idea. As far as I know.........they're obligated to connect you with a superior if you needs aren't met. Take a day and start making some calls. If still no go do the TV thing. Ask for the names of the people you're speaking to. Keep a running list of who all you have dealt with. When you run out of superiors, make sure to let the last one know what your plan is.

    We've got a show out here in Phoenix called 3 on your side (or something to that effect) which is there just for this type of problem. And.......it works especially when the name bombs start dropping.

    You might be surprised. Public officials can move when properly motivated.
