Apparently nobody registers boats in their name anymore. So its almost impossible to get one registered in your name if you buy from someone like this.

One of the things I check before buying. I hate trying to unclutter someone elses mess with vehicles. Yes I learned the hard way!

Sure enough. Find a good one and just have to let it slip away!

I have heard of guys that buy a boat cheap just to sale and make money on and they don't register it so they don't have to pay taxes and make their profits bigger.

Hope you realize that is a Dept. of Revenue deal concerning the payment of sales tax and not a TWRA issue.

Im aware of that. But isnt there a fine for improper registration if the boat isnt in your name even if current in tags?

Yes, if you own and operate the boat it must be registered in your name. It would be a violation to continue to operate it in the previous owner's name even if the registration has not run out.

Why is it a problem to put it your name if the boat is not reported as stollen?
Seems like you could just pay the fee and have it put in your name?

Cause you have to have a notorized bill of sale from who the boat is registered to.Alot of people buy boats and fish out of them as long as the boat registration is good and say they borrowed them.
