    boat titles

    I am buying a used jetski tomorrow from a guy in NY. It's a 97 tigershark that he says he doesn't have a title for. He has a transferable registration for NY. I live in PA, will I be able to take that and a bill of sale and apply for a PA title? I don't want to get screwed here.

    NY and NJ do not title anything under 12'. transferrable reg and notarized bill of sale should suffice, but check with your motor veichled dept and see exactly what they need.

    Does a trailer come w/it? I don't know 'bout the states you're dealing with, but as a reference, Louisiana does not title boats (just transferable registrations). However, all boat trailers come w/titles; same exact documentation as an automobile title.

    +1 registration and bill of sale (including VIN / HIN).
    If there is a trailer make sure you get separate bill of sale
