Resolved Question:

I wish to have a lien executed aganst a boat owner who refuses to pay the repair bill of $2,000 though he has been happy with the job. We cannot find a registration numbr or documentation for the boat but we have the hull number. I am told that since there is neither a registration nor documentation a lien cannot be issued. Is this true?

Hi,

Much better route is to sue him in small clains court. You can do it yourself instead of filing a lien and foreclosing on it for which you would need counsel.
