    so boat motors dont have titles in NC right? but they do require them SC. can you get an older motor from NC titled? i know you have to be able to buy one from NC and be able to use it in SC it would be ridiculous if you couldnt . how does this work out?

    nc was helpful to me when working on getting trailer licensed and the requirements. hope it goes well with sc dnr.
    i had to title and register boat and trailer in nc from sc.
    make sure the notary not only signs but seals. one of the states require the seal. It cost me two trips instead of one.

    The boat that I just bought up Raleigh 2 weeks ago had a title listing the hull#, but no mention of the motor. Guess that I'll find out what happens when I try to register it here!

    Good advice, Wes! I'd better remember to wear my asbestos drawers too, so that my goodies don't get torched :crazy:

    An excerpt from the SC Registration & Titling Information. Read the whole document at http://www.dnr.sc.gov/boating/registration.html

    5) Outboard Motor - Previously titled in another state or purchased from another state

    1. Title in seller's name if you are purchasing from a titling state (Mississippi, Missouri, Ohio, Oklahoma, Texas or Utah). If you are purchasing from any other state, send a Bill of Sale or statement explaining how the outboard motor was obtained.
    2. Pencil Tracing, if traceable or Photograph of Serial Number on outboard motor.
    3. Bill of Sale, signed and dated.
    4. When purchasing an outboard motor separately from an individual, there is no cap. You are required to pay Casual Excise Tax. The tax is 6% of the purchase price. Please include this fee along with your transfer fee. If purchasing from a dealer, taxes are collected by the dealer.
    5. Completed and Signed Application - (Adobe File Format.gif Adobe PDF format - file size 57Kb)
    6. Fee - $10 for new title
    7. Late Fees

    I hope this will help. :big_smile:

    I bought a boat from NC a few years back, its not hard to do. SC DNR will give you a new title number for the motor. You just print the registration form off of their website and it out they will assign a title number for the motor.
