i just purchased a older 17' whaler just the hull.previous owner(wifes father)bought it at an auction 10 years ago.the boat sat the whole time,plus he can not find the title for it.the auction company,of course out of business now,never sent him the title.from what he was told it was an oil spill boat.it had a 2" rope rub rail held on by intertwined smaller rope drilled through the rail. it does not have the "smirk",so im guessing it is an older boat.any guess on what year it is,model, and ways of getting a new title.

#1, #2, and #3. Be sure to get a bill of sale from the previous owner. Have it include the fact that the previous owner does not have a title document and the circumstances of his purchase.
Find the serial number of the hull and inquire to BW about it's history. You can search this board to find out where the numbers are at.
I don't know about all states, but here you can fill out a form to register a "vehicle" that you do not have a title for. No/Lost title report or something like that. You can then register the "vehicle" and get a title for it.
Talk to your Department of Licensing (or whatever it is called in your state).
Shouldn't be that big a deal, but get documentation from the person you bought the boat from!

Rollcast, here is a suggestion which might work with little hassle.
Have your father in law write out a bill of sale. Include the serial number year (the serial number will should show it or as Tsuriki recommended ask Whaler --- email@example.com include the serial number)and have it notarized then take it to the MD registration ??
If you need a blank formal looking bill of sale email me and I'll send you a copy. Good luck Tom
