You will need:

      3. The buyer must complete, sign and have notarized the TC96-215 form.
      4. Whomever did the repair, if any, on the boat must complete, sign and have notarized the mechanical statement.
      5. All receipts, if any, will need to be provided with documentation to acquire approval from the state to title and register a rebuilt or salvaged boat.
