That DOES sound right...in texas you needed a title for the boat, but not the trailer...when i moved here to fort carson, i had to go to the state trooper office for them to verify the VIN on the trailer. You dont need to go to the trooper office just a place that verifies vin numbers. They would have to go to their dmv and create a title for the boat like i had to do for the trailer when i moved here. So I would think they have to do the same thing in NE. Have the VIN on the boat verified or filled out in the paperwork when they submit for one at the DMV there. Same goes for WI with registering boats not the trailers.
Something was weird about TX maybe it was you needed a title for a Outboard motor also? Anyway with any sell like this you would be better off calling the DMV in his state. MAking sure he has what he need to get a title for the boat once he gets there.
I'm the opposite. Bought a boat from someone in Nebraska. They gave me title for boat but only bill of sale for trailer. I had to get vin inspection to get title for trailer in Colorado and only register boat.
texas requires a title for boat, motor, and trailer. you can apply for a lost title or apply for a shop made trailer title if you don't have a title. i would sell it here under colorado law and get all the paper work he will need in nebraska and fill it out and have it notorized here in colorado when the sale is made. texas now requires the seller to file paper work for the sale in a specified time now.
