Good morning. I have been looking for a Jon boat because our wonderful Mad river canoe isn't stable enough for my husband.
Anyway I was determined to be out on the water fishing this Forth of July, and I found a boat that hasn't been in the water for 10 years is a neighbors yard. I bought it from her and she is trying to find the title, ( It was her dad's ) he past away 4 years ago and it has been sitting in her back yard for all this time covered with a tarp.
Anyway I am waiting for the title so I can register it. Any tips for me?
It is in good shape. aluminum 14' 3 seats (benches) lol
I have already order new oars and seat cushions
I did take it out on the fishing spot at France park. 10 Blue gill!!!
Thanks in advance.

I don't know how it is out there but if it's older than a 1998 here in PA, you don't need a title, just a bill of sale. Prior to 98, titles weren't issued here

Probably a notarized affirmation of ownership/inheritor would suffice. Check with your nearest Motor Vehicle Office or go online. Should not be too much of a hassle.

Can’t help you with your state laws, but I would love to see some pictures of your new ( to you ) boat.
Maybe Commander Bell can help.
