Bought a boat from a guy in Michigan. I have all the papers that are required for him in Mich. Boat and motor titles, and registration for trailer. I called ahead of time to find out what all I needed to do to jump through all the hoops for Ohio. I went to Title bureau first to transfer boat and motor titles. Then to ODNR to register boat and get set of #'s to put on boat. They dont sell the #'s. No problem, she says just go to Walmart and buy them. OK. Next I go to the license bureau to trasfer trailer registration and get plates. They tell me I have to get trailer weighed (without boat) to transfer registration. I have the original Michigan registration with the weight right on it. They wont take Michigans word. As long as I have a weight paper with me to get trailer weighed, I can drive it to weigh station to get weighed.(without plates) Problem is the boat is on the trailer and I cant take it to lake and just let it sit there while I go jump thru more hoops !! Then they tell me the weight slip is only good to drive to the weigh place, not the lake. The thing that burns me is I called them ahead of time and asked them (license bureau) what all I had to do. They said to bring in the registration and bill of sale and they would take care of it. Now ,I'm busy the rest of the week and weekend and have to burn another day just running around jumping hoops next week. I can't believe Ohio wont take Michigans word that the weight on the registration is correct. Sorry this is so long, but I just had to vent........... Man, this ticks me off !!!
