This is coming up with regard to my boat, but I hope someone here has done this.
My boat is licensed currently and registered in California. I do NOT have the title- it dissolved. No idea what happened to the trailer title
. Both are current, though, with tags.
A potential buyer is in Washington state.
He called the DMV and was told he could not register it there without the California title
. I can sell it to him with a concomitant application for duplicate title
. Does he just have to wait for the new title to reregister it in Washington? That would seem simple enough to me.
I haven't wanted to apply for the duplicate title for fear of a registration
fiasco going on for months as happened with my trailer- and in the meantime I'd be unable to sell. So I've planned to sell with the form that both transfers ownership and requests a new title. It's good for selling out of state, since it asks for the state of the new owner.
Any wisdom here?
