One guy managed to beat the crazy TPWD regulations about the title for a used boat. Read about it here. banana

Been there, tried to get registration on a used boat I bought and failed miserably the first time. Only after showing up with the boat, motor, previous owner, title for boat and motor, original bill of sale and invoice, two witnesses to the sale, cancelled check, bill of sale from purchasing the used boat, and a hassle beyond imagination did I get the sticker I needed in order to actually fish out of the boat I bought.

Registration for the trailer took less then five minutes and required no papers at all.

Almost enough to make a Texan move to Louisiana, almost.

You keep asking, "May I speak to your boss?" When you get to the person that says, "I don't have a boss", then you are in the right office. Unfortunately State worker bees really don't care if your problem gets solved. They're waiting for 5:00.

The boat sold at auction for $50 because no one else wants to mess with titling the boat at TPWD. A jon boat's value doubles on Craigslist if there is a title.

Five trips for me and a used $250.00 two man 8' boat with all paper work in order. I got all papers that I needed sent from TPWD in in their original condition and colors and the first thing I was told is that they would not accept them because they were the wrong color! The lady then gave me black and white copies to use.

guys it is not that hard to get boat an motor titles transferred if you have the correct title apps an they are filled out properly there is generally no problems where the problems come in is when someone is trying to sell a boat or motor that is not in thier name if you are buying aboat motor & trailer from out of state if you check with tp& w an your county tag agent for the trailer it will save a lot of headaches for all a good rule is if the boat motor & trailer is not in the name of whose getting the money run from the deal.

save yourself a lot of head aches. Never buy a boat that is not titled in the sellers name no matter how good the deal is.

I had every thing in order and it still took several trips, I had the wrong color? they were the offical forms from the State of Texas.
The lady I bought the boat from bought it new from Walmart in Mckinney and had the papers she got when she bought it and when I went to TPWD they said that the lady I bought it from did not pay sales tax and since she didn't then I could not pay mine until she payed hers, does that make any sense?

yes that makes perfect sense you cant just skip a transaction if she had paid the tax an had it transferred into her name before you purchased it from her there would have been no problem because if she had not paid the tax an registered it in her name according to tp&w she was not the owner of record agian if someone is trying to sell a boat motor or trailer that the titles an registration is not in thier name walk away an tell them when they get good titles call you.

What if she did not need the boat registered. No registration needed in Texas if boat does not have a motor.

The paper work was done by the store and I had a TITLE in her name from the STATE OF TEXAS. The only thing that changed from the first trip to the last was the color of the paper.
The lady at TPWD would find a "problem" which was the color of the paper and say sorry this is the wrong color here is the correct one " A B/W copy of the original" and say "NEXT"

I think that the boat does not need to be registered if it is used on private property and just about anything used on public water with or without a motor must be registered.
