Default Buying a bama boat

Looking at a 30footer out of Alabama but when I asked him about a clear title he says bama doesn't have titles on boats and I would get a bill of sale. He's had the boat over a year and never put it in his name but he would be writing the bos..........should I run from this? Decent boat for the price but don't want registration problems.

All you need is a bill of sale. Nothing to worry about. That's all I have for mine and when I sell it, I will also just require a bill of sale

Just have the vin number run. If it comes back stolen, don't buy it.
If it's good, then just get a bill of sale and go put it in your name.
Get sea tow insurance in case you ever break down.
Might even be a good idea to have a mechanic or a buddy that knows boat motors to have a look at it too.

You need a bill of sale & a copy of the owners registration with the same name

Does the bill of sale need 2 witnesses?
