Anyone have advice on registering a ski without a title?
Several months ago I bought an '03 GPR hull from a forum member that I planned on using for a conversion project. I've since found a better hull & have a friend who is interested in buying it, but I lost the title & bill of sale. At first the seller seemed willing to help me get a replacement but now doesn't return calls or emails. The ski had never been registered in the seller's name & the SC registration office wouldn't give me the registered owner's name/address so I could contact him directly. According to him, he bought it from a friend who he sees frequently but never transferred the registration.
I am in FL & the hull is titled in SC. If I am unable to get a replacement title, is there any other way to register it so it will be legal to ride?

Find the title.
Seriously, i think you'll have to have the guy you bought it from get a duplicate title. Then you'll have a title and then you'll have to get another bill of sale.

In NC I had to send a certified letter to the last registered owners adress and after 30 days with no response I sent in a copy of the certified letter sent to the wildlife office and in about 30 more days they titled it in my name !! Hope this helps, I know that all states are different !!!

I had purchased a mobile home years back with no title for very cheap and I used a company to help track down the registered owner and had them sign it over to me but I had a bill of sale from who I had purchased it from. It cost me a few hundred dollars but ended up selling it for 3 times what I paid for it.

FL is no joke when it comes to that stuff. I had to drive to back to PA from Orlando to get the guy to get a duplicate...they "FL" would not even consider anything but that. I had no way to get in touch other then knowing where he lived. I paid 4k and could not ride the ski for 2 months until I found the Cat...
