Default Getting A Title

Alright. I know this has probably been posted before, but I can't find it, so I'll ask.

I have a Jet Ski. I bought it for 400 bucks from a dude that said I don't need the title, just a bill of sale.. Well. I need a title.

I called the Sheriff out, he told me I needed a green sheet. I went to the SOS and told them I bought this thing and need a title. They told me yep, you're fawked without a title, we can't register it to you without it.

So what do I need to do? Go to SOS and tell them it was abandoned? How the hell do I get a title? There must be a way to do this.

Green sheet from SOS, filled out by local PD, and verification that it is not stolen.

I did the same thing with a jetski once...I had to get a surety bond for $100 , have the popo check it to see if it was stolen, then I was able to get a title.

Green sheet is form TR-54 and can be downloaded from the SOS site. It's equipment and VIN check; equipment check won't apply to you.

The LEO will sign off on the VIN part of the form, then you take that and a Bill of Sale (for taxes) to SOS.

Don't worry. Just buy it. It's 10,000 firm and I want your 4x4 too as part of the trade. I'll throw in a crappy trailer.
