Well it looks like I am in the market for a used boat and living close to the NC border, a lot of good options pop up across the state line. I know that in SC we have to have our boats and motor titled and registered. While in NC it is the boat and trailer.

My question is about the motor. I know the boat should be no issue. But if they have a motor with no registration and no paperwork(which Iím sure most will not have on a 10 year old motor) how do I go about getting it titled and registered here in SC? I need a garaunteed way to do this before I even consider any boat in NC because I have a fear of making a purchase and not being able to register it or use it.

Also I am not terribly far from GA so for the right deal I would travel there as well but do not know their procedures on boats or motors.

Can anyobe give me any insight insight on making sure I do this the correct way or is it better to limit my search to just SC where titling will be no question.

Thank you for any help

I think that the only correct answer will be found in the title department in SC. I don't think that the registration or title department in another state can give you verifiable information on your state. Start there and post up, I think others would like to know what you find out. Good luck.
