Shesaidso: Are you in Vegas?
My shop is on D.I. (Wynn & Arville).
What did the bill of sale say? Did it say 2003 or 2002?
I sold my Baja to a guy in Seattle. I wrote a bill of sale with year, make, model and HIN of the boat annd trailer. Boat was delivered, sea trialed, payment was made to me and bank. He took delivery of the boat. I sent a check to the bank and paid off the note, title was sent to buyer.
This is the way your transaction should have gone too. If the bill of sale has the wrong year on it you may have some recourse. Or the judge may tell you, "you should have done your homework!"
Anyway, if I can help let me know. If you need a hand running your boat, I'm now boatless and am scrounging rides!
