Which States Do Not Require Titles On Boats??
Can a few of you list some states that do not currently require titles for boats over 24 feet?

Wisconsin doesn't however it is registered much like a sled . DNR registration (card) is the method used.

I am trying to get my 2008 stickers in Alabama and not give them my real bill of sale on my boat. If I do, then I get hit with a 1,700 dollar tax bill because of the price paid on the boat.
I want to hand them a dummy invoice for around 4,500 bucks on a boat with "no motor" from a "seller" in a state that doesn't title their boats and call it a day......then leave with my 2 stickers!!
I don't want Alabama asking "where's the title" or better yet "who's the lein-holder"...

Dont confuse title with taxes. In most non-title states sales tax is still due.
In your scenario of buying from a different state wont work.
If I sold you a Wi boat it is possible the titling state would go back to the issuing state to verify title is clear. At that point if the seller didnt pay taxes in his state they would be due. In other words you would just be paying taxes in two states instead of one.
I bought a ski from Mo last year and the seller never titled it in his name (title skipped). He got a letter from Mo wanting the titling fees and sales tax eventhough he had sold the ski to me.

When I went to the Alabama DMV yesterday. I had 2 goals, one was to switch my tag from a Toyota Tacoma to a Nissan Titan, that was fine. Then I wanted to register my new Baja and she asked for only the bill of sale and typed in the value ----- then asked me for 1,700 dollars. I said "let's hold off on this" as piss ran down my leg, and she voided everything.
So I am going today to the other DMV office with my "new" bill of sale that I created for 4,500 bucks on a boat with "no motor". They should still ask for only the bill of sale like the other office did, but the value is different.
