You can do a lien search in most every state. I'll frequently use this site:

You may have to pay a fee in some states.

Hello,

Thank you for using justanswer.com, my name is XXXXX XXXXX I will be glad to assist you with your concern today.

 

To find all the info you are asking for by using the HIN you need to go to your local registration office or have a friend thats in law enforcement.

 

Usually a tag/registration office will not give out that info unless the vessel is being checked into as abandoned.

 

If you need further assistance I will be glad to help you.

 

Thanks,

Joe
