I called TPWD yesterday and spoke with a really nice lady.Heres what she said.1994 and earlier 12hp and under did not require a title unless it had been sold after 1994. So if you have and older motor that you still own,no title is required. But if you sell, the new owner has to acquire a new title,they charge to build you a title.
So if you have a 94 and older in your garage that was bought are traded for before Jan 1 95 you don't have to have title.
Any doubts call call your local TPWD office any ask about small motor titles.It took her less than 3 minutes to explain it.
I called the Garland Tx office.

A similar situation: My dad bought a 12-foot aluminum skiff about 1960. He kept it for about 25 years, then sold it to one of my cousins. He kept it about fifteen years and gave it to my nephew, my dad's grandson. I recently got it from my nephew and went to TPWD with an affadavit of its history from my nephew, seeking a title, as I wanted to put a trolling motor on it. They made me pay $25 to have a Game Warden inspect it, looking for a non-existant ID number. None found, she gave me an assigned Hull ID number, and I was able to title the boat for a total of $84! Inspection: $25. Title Fee: $27. Registration(two years): $32.


It IS possible to title old boats, in Texas, if you have a valid chain of possession. I have my nephew's 1961 Johnson to put on it. I'm not even gonna start dealing with that issue.

I have always wished they change the law regarding titles for small boats and outboards. There are millions of small boats and outboards out there that go unused due to not being able to get a title for them.

the main reason their are so many out there without titles is a lot of times on motors they don't go an transfer it into their name even on newer motors.
