Anyone selling one WITH a title? Everyone i come across the owner never has the title to it lol
I understand that a title isn't required if it doesn't have a motor on it (and most new ones are sold "bare boat" with no motorized propulsion. My 10' Pelican wasn't titled as there was no motor on it when it was purchased. The following statement is listed under "exemptions" on the TPWD website:
"Non-motorized canoes, kayaks, punts, rowboats, or rubber rafts (regardless of length) when paddled, poled, or oared and sailboats under 14 feet in length when windblown. Adding an outboard or trolling motor to one of these types requires titling and registration."
There are provisions for titling these if a motor is added. Certain forms are required, but it can be done I understand.
