I will post some pics asap,

I hear you about never forgetting LOL


As for the plans, get the motor running and fish out of the boat as is for now till money pans out.


do have to figure out how to raise the transom up due to having a long shaft motor but I dont think that will be to much of a problem, and possibly a nice swivel seat to sit in or 2 LOL Maybe if I can find the clamp on still for a decent price.....

Congrats on your new boat. I too just picked one up.

I am from IL as well and had to make sure I had all the titles from MO. I used a private license / title place and just paid the fees to get everything registered all at once. I think it's worth the extra cost in IL since it only took about ten minutes to do with a license / title company. Titles are a must in IL. The home-made trailer thing is way gone. IL has made it more difficult. You must swear you made the trailer and the state must inspect it now. If they see it's an old trailer and and find an old serial # on it your screwed. Big fine from the state. My titles were in the name of a trust so I had to get the main page of the trust and the signature page in order to register and change the title over in IL. I just love how this state does things.

well the titleing thing is going to be fun....cause I have no titles for either one, how much did it cost to go to a title company?

I think I paid an extra $26. The place I went to won't touch homemade trailer titles any more and won't do lost titles. You will be on your own. The lady at the title place was explaining the process of homemade trailer title to someone and told them to expect possible close to 6 months before it gets titled. She said IL has changed so many laws lately that they make it difficult.

GOOD LUCK!!!

dont plan on doing anything until it is all said and done and the title is in my name.....I know I will get titles it is just going to take a little time....I should have the title for the boat as soon as I have it inspected by IDNR.....

All it is going to take is paper work paper work and time....

see the last time i did a homemade title was about a year and half ago for my car hauler....I had no problems getting a homemade title, so I am hoping that it will go the same with the boat trailer....I can't find a number on the trailer at all....if all else fails I will clean it up, reweld a few things new bolts and some paint and call it a homemade trailer and have it inspected if need be :wink: :wink:



As for the boat I have to have it inspected by IDNR on May 19, send that form in and the power of attorny form that I had the seller sign and my registration in and bam I have a boat title....Not really that big of deal just a very time consuming process.....
