Question - No. Dak. Titles?

Recommended Posts

eyepatrol

We're working on the financing for purchasing a boat from a guy in North Dakota. In my discussion with him, he seems to believe they don't title boats or trailers in North Dakota. Can anyone confirm this?

Also, I'm not a big finance guy, but I believe there would be some sort of lien on the rig whether it's paid off or not. Is there a way to get the lien release card if the guy hasn't paid the boat off yet, or how would that work?

Thank you!

Trailer no they don't usually have to be licensed unless it is trailered out of state. So if he is just local with it then probably doesn't have a license.

This is straight from the Game and Fish I just got off the phone with them. In ND the game and fish handle the licensing of all motor boats.

The boat will be licensed and would be registered but it will NOT have a title. It should have a registration card though. Get that registration card and when you take it to the DMV in Minnesota the will use that to set up the title in MN. If you have anymore questions call the Game and Fish license center at Licensing (701) 328-6335.

Give them a call if you have more question they are usually very helpful.

I went through the exact same situation. If your going to take out a loan for the boat it is essential that you write out a buyers agreement stating that the buyer is not responsible for any leins or debt of the previous owner. Both the owner and seller should sign the agreement that includes the make model and serial numbers of the boat, motor, trailer, and also the purchase price. The buyer agreement also shows proof of ownership that is required when you title a boat. The registration only shows posession, and not proof of ownership. You can do a google search and find a great outline and you can also have it notarized. The only tough part about buying a boat without a title is that if it was ever wrecked or salvage, there would be no record of it.

I am not entirely sure on what the NoDak law is but you may want to contact the ND Sec. of State office to do a search of UCC filings for liens on the boat which would be filed under the owners name.

I'm a guy that lives in ND, but I have my boat titled in MN.

When I went through all this, I got many, many answers. Everyone I asked seem to have a different answer, even from each state DMV's and MNDNR/NDDGF.

This is what I have.

ND Resident

Boat is licensed in MN

No lisc. on boat trailer, as they are not required in ND. You can purchase an optional lisc. for your trailer for $15, however it is not required.

IANAL, so YMMV.

the boat wont have a title in MN either, just a dnr registration card. the trailer will be titled in MN, and if under 3000# or 3500# it will not need license plate and instead will have permanent registration.

if the boat is paid for, there would be no liens against it, but you will want to make sure its paid for, or that liens if there are any are cleared up.

Are you sure about this? This spring when buying a new boat I thought the registration card from the old boat was all I needed but the dealer said that the boat was titled. Which after doing some searching we found the title for the boat. So I am sure that the boat in MN will be titled.

      A series of events celebrating the 10-year anniversary of the passage of the Clean Water, Land and Legacy Amendment will take place throughout Minnesota in 2018. The first of these events will be from 1 to 4 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 27, at Silverwood Regional Park, 2500 County Road E, St. Anthony.  Adults and kids who attend the Parks and Trails Legacy Celebration at Silverwood Regional Park can try kick-sledding, ice fishing, a snowmobile simulator and other indoor and outdoor activities. Visitors can also hike among art sculptures throughout the park. Between activities, there will be s’mores and other light refreshments around a crackling bonfire. “The passage of the Legacy Amendment was a game-changer for organizations working to support Minnesota’s outstanding system of parks and trails,” said Erika Rivers, director of the DNR’s Parks and Trails Division. “At this event, and the statewide events to follow, we will not only highlight what has been accomplished over the past decade with Legacy funding but, perhaps even more important, we will gather input from people throughout the state—adults and kids alike—to help shape priorities moving forward.” Staff from the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources, the Metropolitan Council and the Greater Minnesota Regional Parks and Trails Commission will be on hand throughout the afternoon to lead activities and gather ideas. Metro Transit is providing free rides to the event. Get a downloadable bus pass at www.legacy.leg.mn/ptlac/2018-regional-events. Future Parks and Trails Legacy Celebration events will take place: Friday, April 27, 4-7 p.m., at the College of St. Benedict in St. Joseph. Saturday, May 5, 1-4 p.m. at the Red Baron Arena in Marshall. Friday, May 11, 4-7 p.m., at Hyland-Bush-Anderson Lakes Park in Bloomington. Saturday, May 19, 1-4 p.m. at 125 LIVE in Rochester.

      Which river is good for char?

      Here's a little back ground. The Dakota originally called the lake Mde Maka Ska (modern spelling Bde Maka Ska, pronunciation: Be-DAY Mah-KAH-Ska)[5] meaning White Earth Lake,[6] or White Bank Lake,[7] a name that probably was given by the Ioway who inhabited the area until the 16th century. Another Dakota name for the lake may have been Mde Med'oza, which was the name initially adopted by settlers, either as Lake Medoza or in translation as Loon Lake.[8] The Dakota also described it as Heyate Mde, meaning "Lake Set Back (from the River)".[9] The United States Secretary of War, John C. Calhoun, sent the Army to survey the area that would surround Fort Snelling in 1817. Calhoun had also authorized the construction of Fort Snelling, one of the earliest Euro-American settlements in the state. The surveyors renamed the water body "Lake Calhoun" in his honor. The Fort Snelling Military Reservation survey map created by Lt. James L. Thompson in 1839 clearly shows the lake as bearing the name "Calhoun".[10] Minneapolis skyline reflected in the lake in 2010 Calhoun's legacy as a pro-slavery politician has led critics to question whether he is the best person to be honored. In 2011 the Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board visited the issue. Their legal counsel concluded that the board could not legally change the name, as state law gives that power to the Commissioner of Natural Resources, and then only in the first 40 years after the name was designated. Following the Charleston church shooting in June 2015, a fresh drive to change the name started via an online petition. The Park Board indicated it would look into whether they could change the lake's name through state action,[11][12] and in fall 2015 added the Dakota name to signage below the official name.[1] On March 22, 2016, an advisory group decided via majority vote to urge the Minnesota Park and Recreation Board to restore the lake's former name.[13] In 2017, the Minneapolis Park Board voted unanimously to change the lake's name back to that of Bde Maka Ska[14] and the Hennepin County commissioners approved it more narrowly.[15] The change needs final approval at state and federal level in order to go into effect.[16] There was also a proposal to rename the lake for Senator Paul Wellstone, who is buried in nearby Lakewood Cemetery.[17]

      The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources today announced the State of Minnesota has approved changing the name of Lake Calhoun in Minneapolis to Bde Maka Ska. The DNR’s decision follows a Hennepin County Board resolution requesting the change.  “The DNR respects the role of elected county boards in determining name changes for geographic features,” DNR Commissioner Tom Landwehr said.  “In this instance, I am confident the Hennepin County Board carefully considered community values and citizen perspectives in determining that this was the right action to take. DNR’s role is to ensure the county followed the proper process.” The DNR’s decision means the lake name change will become official in Minnesota when the DNR’s approval is officially recorded by Hennepin County and published in the State Register. Hennepin County commissioners voted to seek the name change Nov. 28. The DNR will submit the Hennepin County resolution, along with the state approval, to the U.S. Board of Geographic Names, which will approve or deny the name change for federal use. The DNR is the state agency that approves or denies name changes for geographic features, after Minnesota counties consider name change resolutions, gather public input and vote on proposed changes. In considering county requests to name a geographic feature or change a feature’s name, the DNR’s role is to consider 1) whether the county followed a proper public process prior to taking its action, and 2) whether the county-approved name complies with naming conventions. For example, names must avoid confusion with similarly named features, and names may not commemorate a living person. A copy of the DNR’s order for this name change and details on how Minnesota geographic features are named are available on the naming geographic features webpage.

      my dad grew up in The Pas, my grand parents owned the avenue hotel and they had a place on Clearwater. Summers we would go up and fish and ski and such. Lots of good memories, other than the horseflies (Bulldogs). My experience was always it really didn't matter what you used, for lakers as long as it was shiny it got hit. Our technique was pretty simple, drop it to the bottom and reel is up fast. they hit hard on the way up and its clear like superior so you can see them a long way down if you have good ice. The river right out of town is good for char too.
