Boat Records Release
BoatWiki - Definitions
A boat records release can be defined as a written authorization from a boat owner that directs a state registration agency to provide a non-owner with access to any title or registration records.
Access to boat registration and title information in most states is restricted to the owner and certain privileged entities. Any other parties must accordingly obtain a release authorization from the owner.
Unless otherwise privileged, a non-owner must typically obtain written permission to obtain boat title and registration records. This must then be submitted along with a formal boat record request form to the respective agency.
Non-owners that have accessed boat title and registration data should be cautious about how it is used in order to avoid liability for any resulting damages to the owner. Please help your fellow boaters by wiki-sharing any comments or experiences related to this subject.
