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.

And if it didn't have a hull #, a GW can inspect the rig for worthiness and assign a hull # to it. Hull # will be stored on the craft itself, maybe in some sort of pocket. I'm going thru that now with my inflatable. This is an old thread, so let us know how it went.
