What do I do, pontoon registration #13885286 02/13/21 01:14 AM

Gentlemen, I am wanting to get a couple Colorado XT pontoon boats for the wife and I this year.

We want to put trolling motors on them when in use in lakes.

I know since they have trolling motors they have to be registered to use but how do I go about that when they don't have a serial number or anything. What information or documents must I have to get it registered.

I ask because the last time I bought a little Water Moccasin boat with trolling motor on it, I had absolute heck with TPW even though it was registered already and I had titles to both the boat and trailer. I had to go back to the previous owner that was retired Warden to get more information/documents/more signatures three times.

Also when I bought a little two man bass buster type boat one time, I had to get Academy to send me some kind of documentation to get it stickered.

I just don't think you get anything sent to you with a little pontoon boat.

I am not complaining as I understand rules are rules, I just didn't seem to be able to understand everything they wanted.

I'd just like to have my ducks in a row if I purchase these so I don't have all the issues.

Thanks for any help!

Go to the registration have the outline everything you need to register the boats before you purchase them. I have found this is much easy than making several trips back and forth. They simply gave me the paperwork and highlighted what sections the seller and I needed to complete too get the boat registered.

I donโ€™t know about the new models but my 10 year old XT has a serial # on one of the skins.

So after that advice, letting me know about your XT, I called Classic Accessories.

So just in case anyone else comes across this thread with the same question.

C/A says the Colorado comes with a hull identification on it and it also comes with a certificate of origin that takes care of all the information you need to get it registered with TPWD.
