    You have a PM...

    Is there a way we can title this boat once I make it seaworthy?

    Is this my old highsider that I sold last Christmas?

    Tom, I think you can just register it as a homemade boat since it's <16'

    You can't legally title a manufactured boat of any size as homemade...legally being the keyword. Anyone who says any different about the state of Florida's laws is telling stories. Sorry for the bad news. If a Coast Guard stops you on the water and knows what a Gheenoe is and you have a homemade title for it, you will be finding another way home because they will take it.

    Looks like a bit of digging will have to be done.
    You will need either the old FL numbers or the HIN off the hull.
    Then contact DMV and find the last registered owner.
    A duplicate title can be purchased for a nominal fee,
    and then title can be transferred legally.
    I think forum member Green Hornet did exactly that on his project.

    You nailed it, that's the right way to do it. From the looks of that 'noe you probably aren't gonna find either one on there though. If you do, just be aware that once you find the previous owner they don't have to transfer the title to you. They can and should, but they don't have to. I purchased a Gheenoe without a title about a year ago and went through the process. 6 months later the previous owner finally replied to my request with an answer of "NO", she said it had been stolen from her years ago by her neighbor who sold it to the guy I bought it from. She was a liar, I found out for a fact becuase he had a bill of sale with her signature. Nonetheless, I wasn't gonna take someone to court over $200. So I had to sell it for 1/2 of what I paid for it to someone for use in a private lake. The new owner tried to get the title from her and still doesn't have it last I heard. Sorry for the long story, just figured my experience may help someone else.
