i plan to buy a boat from a guy this weekend but one problem is he can only give me a bill of sale. does this sound about right for alabama no titles he says. oh and the trailer he said doesn't need a license plate. is this true.

I ran into the same problem in Tenn. I went to Tenn to look at a boat and wanted to buy it, work out a deal and I asked about the title, he said "title"? We don't don't have titles in Tenn. I went back to the Hotel without the boat. So the next morning I called the local boat dealers in Tenn and asked them about it and they said the same thing thing, no titles in Tenn. I called the tag office in Oklahoma and they said that's normal and all I would need is a bill of sale and have it notarized. Also he had a state registration card which they needed too. Went home with the boat and had no problems getting a title. I would check with your states tag offices and the boat dealers in Alabama.

Ryan,
Alabama law does not require registration of boat trailers or titling of vessels. Check out the official Alabama website - http://www.dcnr.state.al.us/boating/registration.cfm. Make sure to ask for the latest registration certificate
