Boat registration

3 posts in this topic

I bought my boat from Cabelas back In mid March.

Picked up the boat about a week later.

Blew the original Engine about a week later.

Had them order a new motor 2 weeks later, rather than repair the original.

Little over 2 weeks later I had the boat back.

Since then, I've been using a 21 day permit for the Trailer and Cabelas has been sending me 10 day boating permits.

Well, the 21 day trailer permit expired last week or so and now my 3rd 10 day permit expired this past weekend.

I guess the original owner, from ND, lost his title. Since the boat was never registered in MN it was more complicated than Cabela's thought. Also, they wanted to wait to see what I was going to do with the boat after the motor blew.

I called Cabelas last Thursday to let them know my 21 day had expired and I was informed that all the paper work was back and all they had to do was run it to the DMV and pick it up on Friday. I was told they'd next day mail the registration to me.

Today is Tuesday.. Still no registration in my hands.

Call down to Cabelas and they say "My hands are tied, it's sitting down at the DMV".

This whole boat ordeal has become a major pain in the butt... I'm really glad I decided to stay home for opener or I really would be upset..

Guess my boat will have to sit in the garage for a few more days, while I wait for the registration. mad.gif

Had to vent a bit..

You should be able to use it. The DMV is so fricken slow on these it is rediculous. We got a new boat last year in April and I think that I had it by June finally. The dealer told me that if any tickets were issuesed after my temp permit expired that they would take care of it.

      I've been out shore fishing a couple times at Hidden Falls and Minnehaha up to the dam.  Been really slow for me too.  Going out again this morning for the first time in a couple weeks.  Hoping to find a better bite as I've been hearing slightly better reports from boaters in the area.

      Well I ended up picking up the Cabelas zone specialist on sale for $160 plus I had a coupon in the mail for 20 off A $150 purchase
      Picked up a new chair and a power owl call ( Im pretty sure I can call better with no call than that thing) I had a 200 gift card so I walked out of there with 17.00 credit
      Not bad I say I really liked the blind I sat in them all that were set up with my chair and I grabbed a bow from the archery department. I know people will probably disagree but dare I say from what I seen I like it better than the bullpen even.
      It seems to me to be made of a good material too and I can see it lasting awhile as I will take care of it and I am not going to leave it out for days on end. We will see how it is to hunt out of soon.

      I love my 6 inch K Drill however the blades seem to dull faster to me once I figured it out. Happy as a clam. I do regret selling my power auger. I bought a 8 Eskimo power auger for when I go to Mille lacs. the K drill will work just fine but I liked having the 8 inch hole for eyes up there harder to turn there head in a six inch hole. I know you can drill 2 holes together but for me it just worked. Short story Rick G is right on I love my K drill. Would recommend to any one and it's so much lighter when runnin and gunnin.

        Just wanted to share info on what I know about how those USGS stream gages work.  The stream gaging station will not reflect accurate readings of stage and discharge while ice cover is present.  If you are looking at USGS stream gages you will see a little note in the data table that says "Ice Cover" if this is the case.  They won't be useful until the ice is gone and "Ice Cover" is not showing up next to the readings.  They work on water pressure to estimate the height of water above the gage.  More water flowing under the ice creates more water pressure, so makes the estimated gage height and corresponding estimated discharge go up.  The USGS gage at Manitou should be accurate (no ice cover).  The higher flow will draw the fish in better than low flow.  Another good one to check is the LWCB gages for Rainy Lake and the tailrace below the dam(s).  That will help determine if it's the Forks affecting water levels or just more water coming out of Rainy, which is nice and clear.  Hopefully it won't get muddy!  Maybe see you out there DucksnBucks.  T-Rock-1.
