I had a man rebuild a 17' Lowe boat and I had a 30 motor put on it. He did some shotty work, but I paid him anyway. I told him to put my titles to the boat and motor under the seat and I would pick it up that weekend and then I had a heart attack.
When I got out of the hospital I went to get my boat.... Guess What.... No Titles! He said he never had them and told me to get off his property! Now I have a boat and motor with no titles and the Sheriff said there is nothing to be done.
What Now? Sell the boat and motor with no titles?

that is a civil matter. You might have to take him to court

were the titles in your name already? If so, you can request replacement titles from the state. I am sure there is a cost , just don't know how much it is.

Yea I don't get it. Why does the guy fixing your boat have the titles?

They were in the plastic bag under the driver seat.

if the titles were in your name all you have to do is apply for new titles if not why would anybody leave titles in a boat?

Contact a game warden. They may be able to help more than a local sherriff.

Having difficulty understanding why you would keep the titles under the seat. Regardless, you can apply for a lost title, but it is a little pricy.

As already stated if they were in your name you can get a replacement but if not you have a big problem on your hands and I'm not sure there's anything at all you can do about it. I'm not even going to ask the question of why on earth would the titles not be at home somewhere safe. I hope you can get this sorted out, if not I feel for ya! Would totally suck to have something you can't title. Good luck...
