    Exclamation Disaster has struck me!

    Great news and disasterous news today and I need some advice. I found out today that the 650 ski I got has a hull that Massachusetts will not register. I also found out I got into Suffolk University's Graduate school. Here is my dillema. Grad school = need money. Can't register hull = project I'm working on is useless and I got a ton of parts.

    - Extended pump, driveshaft and steering cable off a 97 SLTX
    - 97 Pro785 Electrical Box and CDI
    - R&D Intake Grate
    - New white mirrors (w/ instructions and pattern
    - New trim kit (w/ extension for long pump, instructions and pattern)
    - Stock sl sponsons for ext. pump
    - 3 780 cylinders w/ heads, exhaust manifold, and cooling bar
    - 750 crankcase and mag cover
    - Reed spacers w/ hardware
    - Ocean Pro Flame Arrestors
    - 780 stator
    - New Boyesen High Performance Reeds
    - New outer crank seals
    - Primer kit for a mikuni triple
    - Mikuni carb rebuild kits
    - 92 short dry pipe
    - 780 Pentagon pump
    - Stock polaris extended ride plate

    To add insult to injury, right now I have a crank and my jugs at Sharp's getting rebuilt and bored. I'm honestly thinking of ditching the project, selling what I have accumulated and licking my wounds.

    Any advice would be appreciated. If you see something you're interested in I guess let me know and if I go that route I'll give you guys first dibs over ebay since everyone has been so helpful to me.

    Finish the project and then sell the watercraft out of state...many people would be able to register it in their state via prior salvage rules...at least here in Mn. it can be done. You'll never get back what you put into it if you part it out...might get more as a complete ski.

    The guy who sold it to me and put his name on the Bill of Sale wasn't the owner. He got it from somebody but never registered it. They need a bill of sale from whoever the original owner is. I call the guy who I got it from...smartly I saved his cell phone number..."we're sorry, the number you are trying to reach is no longer in service".

    Titles

    In most states you can send the last registered owner a "certified letter" to his last known DMV address, and if he doesn't respond within a certain time and/or the letter is undeliverable, you can usually submit this to the DMV/Marine board and petition for a title. Some states will title it with the prior owner as a leinholder for 1-2 years for safety.

    Most DMV offices will have the correct forms..

    well, if you decide to "ditch" the project,

    take it from a guy who knows, it is worth more $$ in parts than it is as a whole.

    Last I knew, you could sell a ski two or three times without registering it. All you should need is a bill of sale with anyones name on it as long as the ski doesn't come up stolen or with a lien on it you should be fine.

    Example; my SLX came from Maine, and it took me over a year to collect the parts to get it going. Instead of paying a late fee for not registering it right away. My buddy made me a new bill of sale with a current date and a smaller dollar amount using his last name. He never owned the ski never mind registered it. I paid my sales tax at the local registry and did the rest on line. I think you can do it all on line. I don't know who you talked to, but I'd try it again.
