Default registration help!

so I bought a boat last year. only used it a couple times because it needed some work. I did not register it.
Now, I have it in better shape and ready to use. I went to register it in Baldwin County where I live. I have bill of sale from the guy I bought it from. He gave me the title from the original owner. The guy I bought it from never registered it either and sold it to me!!
So, now, the tax man is saying I cannot register it because they "must follow the registration." This means the original owner, who passed away 3 years ago, must write me a new bill of sale, which is impossible obviously OR the guy I bought it from must register it and then we re-do the bill of sale!! This is not feasible either! He is not in the area anymore. The lady at the probate court told me to call the marine police to see what they say....thought I would see what ya'll think first.
thanks in advance

Ive done the same thing with vehicles but if the original guy is dead your screwed. At least in Florida you would be. Ive tracked several back 4 "owners" before to get the proper paperwork signed

Its Alabama... have a buddy write you a bill of sale and sign it whom ever name is on the title. Don't go back to the same tax office! I have done this on more than a few occasions to get ATV titles in Fl, since Alabama does not title or register atvs

RISKY! That would sure put your buddy in jeopardy if anything ever went wrong.

Forgery, and probably a few other crimes there.

Do it yourself, leave the buddy out of it.

You have already comited a crime not regestering it within 30 days. May as well get it done so you don't have to deal with it again. Lesson learned next time! Lol

Psh.... crime.... y’all making it sound like he just sold a kilo of coke.

Write a bill of sale with dead mans name, end of story. If it makes you feel better date it back before his death, he won’t say anything about it, I promise! Lol

I believe that your "crime" is an Administration "Crime", NOT an actual Crime for failing to register it within 30 days. Just something to get more $$$ out of you.
