Default Liens against a boat

How do you find out who hold the lien against a boat? and if there is multiple liens against a boat and who all of them are?

Thanks for your help

I have friend who works for the IRS...She has since moved away but when I needed help once, she gave me information about the boat I had no idea they would even know, including owners previous and current addresses, phone numbers, lien holders on the boat, although there were no current liens on it, a bunch more info I could ever want or need.

In IL, you can send in an information request form along with 4 bucks and they will send you information on the HIN, but I have never done it and I dont know to what degree of info you will get...

No wasn't talking about mine..I know he paid cash for it... I was talking about another boat I am trying to find out some info on...
