Looks like all you'd need to do is have the seller fill out a title transfer form, even if there is no title:

http://files.dnr.state.mn.us/rlp/lic...e_transfer.pdf

A boat that old probably doesn't have a hull ID (same as VIN). If it hasn't been licensed in a while, it might not have a registration number either. I'd call the number on the bottom of the form above just to be sure...

The Hull ID should be on the Transom

HID's started in 1972. A '61 Crestliner might not have one. Any ID on the boat is probably a manufacturer serial number or a state generated registration number.

I was just checking my Pm's & seen this thread. thanks for the link on the transfer form. Iv'e been looking at buying my 3rd boat for about a month in the Minn. area.or ND. to bring back to Winnipeg. Waay nicer boats in these 2 states than up here in Manitoba. I had a 12 foot aluminum , then 14' Lund with a floor, sold it , now i'm looking at 16' lund etc, if i see one in speedway blue i'll be over the border in an hour..this site always amazes me. boat info i need on a truck site. brilliant.

Icepick - I left a bunch of my brain cells in the Osborne Village area back in the mid 90's. Can you bring them back down here when you get that new boat? I really miss them...

Just went and checked it out... Here's a couple of pics I took...




I almost drove away with it, but two things kept me from it... The engine was running really rich, so the barrel of water we were running it in was black after about 10 minutes of running.

Second, the steering wheel shook. It didn't affect steering at all, but it made me wonder if I'd hate it after a while or if it would be hard to fix. And we looked - it's not simply a "tighten a nut" or anything like that...

I told him I'd think about it. But the interior of the boat is huge! Lots of room... And the restoration job is top notch...

That does look nice! The vibration may be a combination of the rich running and the cable steering.

Many outboards do that...It smoothes out when the boat is on plane.

Yeah, the two of us tinkered with it for a few minutes but to no avail...

Yeah, I called a boat mechanic and he said it's just a matter of finding the right mixture. The carb was rebuilt last year.

But, the seats aren't bolted down yet, so the sky is the limit on the interior... And considering what I've done to my truck.....................

The planes aren't his - he works at an airport. But, he has three boats. A 95 Bayliner, this '61 Crestliner and a late '50s Crestliner that he also restored but had an accident with on the highway.... He also has a snowmobile sitting there.

He said he has too many toys, that's why he's selling this boat.
