Not my ad but seems like he's willing to bargain:

Isn't that the one that was on here a while back? Not in the for sale section, but maybe the bragging section....
I think so...I knew I recognized it. Someone should pick it up...looks like an awesome project that would turn out great.

No title sounds like a "Buying and Selling Stolen Property" charge in my book. I would be too afraid of picking up a criminal record.

Take the numbers off, remove the manufacturer's plate (and anything that could contain a serial number), hurry and rebuild it, and register it as homemade. I wouldn't think you'd get any trouble.

Or just have the owner give you the HIN (hull identification number) and contact the nearest police agency and ask them to run the HIN for you to see if its been reported as stolen. If it comes back clear then you shouldn't have anything to worry about. Looks like a cool project boat.

If you don't you run the risk of enabling a thief. There is a chance that hull was once someone's pride and joy, stolen in the middle of the night.

Put yourself in those shoes and it looks pretty sh*tty.

I'd say get the HIN and call the po-po to check it out. If he refuses to give them to you, alert the po-po as it's stolen.

Also, a no-brainer, make sure you get a bill of sale with the HIN# on it and his name printed & signed on it.
