I'm going to be purchasing my first bass boat here soon (going to look at one tomorrow) and since this is my first boat purchase, I wanted to make sure my expectations match others. Is it perfectly acceptable to ask the seller to meet at my local TPWD office to transfer boat/motor title? Or does filling out the PWD 143/144 and/or Bill of Sale by both parties when I check out and test drive the boat acceptable? What have you guys done in the past and which method do you prefer?
I want this transaction to be as smooth as possible for both me and the seller and at the same time assure that I will not encounter any bumps in the road. I'm curious to see everyone's thoughts on this. Thanks!
