Default Getting a title for a boat

Got a boat here, used to be raced, has a certificate of origin from Fla, previous owners never registred it or had a title,how do I get a title. Do I call Enviromental Police and get a new number for the hull(since the boat has no title)? Don't there is any paperwork for it in Fla. I live in Mass. If anyone knows anyone to help me, would be very much appreciated.

If you have the certificate of origin and a HIN on the stern , Mass. should be able to issue a title. I know that's all you need in Jersey. I once bought a new 'Burban in Bradenton Fla. , paid in full with certified check and drove it back to Jersey with the C of O and they isued the title. Those bastiges also took the additional 1% sales tax since Fla was only 5% and Jersey was 6%

OH Lordy..... 6 %?..... don't complain to loudly... it's 8.25% here in CA......... Plus when the earthquake hit in '94 they put an extra .05 per gallon tax on gas.... they decided they needed it in the general fund after the quake repairs....

Mar/Trans.,I know here in Conn., All I needed was a bill of sale & they put the title in my name. The Pantera I bought was the same type of deal! Dave B.
