State Record Request Forms

WikiTagsWikiShare


BoatWiki - Forms

Introduction


State boat registration records are for the most part no longer openly available to the general public. This is due to strict consumer privacy laws in most jurisdictions. Although still provided, they are typically restricted to certain privileged parties. These include the actual owner, law firms, lenders, insurance companies, and others with a legitimate interest in the respective boat.

Context


Such restrictions apply only to boats registered or titled  on the state level. Records for Coast Guard documented boat are still available to the general public and these will show ownership data.

Source


State level boat registration and title record request forms are available from the State Boating Requirements Summary as shown in the WikiTags for this page. These summaries will in turn offer links to record ordering forms. They wall also identify the handful of states that do provide openly available data online via the internet.

Instructions


The summary pages will have instructions on how to download the appropriate request form along with details on where to sent the request. Some of these will require fees while others are free of charge.

Conclusion


The response time of obtaining record request results will vary according to each state's registration agency. There are still some that will even provide information over the telephone, but this is a hit and miss proposition depending on whether you reach a particular clerk that is willing to cooperate.
