Does the boat have a TITLE? Or not? This is an important factor.

Okay. And do you wish to KEEP the boat yourself or SELL it, or, simply trash it/recycle/donate/etc?

sell it
Lawyer: Ely, Counselor at Law replied 5 months ago

Thank you. Essentially what you are dealing with is an abandoned boat title in MN. You will have to get a BONDED TITLE (see here) which means putting down a bond backing the claim to the boat. Once this is done, you can register it as your own, and, sell it.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.

Not only did he answer my Michigan divorce question but was also able to help me out with it, too. I have since won my legal case on this matter and thank you so much for it.
