TomW1, now that this thread is "stickied", how do you find the full thread or where do I look to add information? Jeff

Jeff you just look at the Title and add info to it as I did for NC and Iowa. We always Sticky our Boat building meeting in the fall like you did last fall. It would be best if you could move the Sticky to the bottom of the other Sticky's. Jeff maybe I didn't use the right term but lock it in like we do for the Southeastern Builder Meets. You made it a light bulb instead of a circle. Thanks for your help.

For Massachusetts from "I made my own boat. What do I do about registration and titling?" at this page: http://www.mass.gov/eea/grants-and-tech ... boats.html

The owner of a homemade boat should contact the Environmental Police (1-800-632-8075) to schedule an inspection of the vessel by an officer (EPO). Homemade boats must be inspected to establish proof of ownership and to verify the description of the vessel. The inspecting officer will affix a State assigned Hull Identification Number (HIN) to the vessel and provide the customer with an inspection certificate that must be presented when registering the vessel. In addition, the applicant must submit a completed form provided by the Department of Revenue showing that sales tax on materials used has been paid ( ST-6/6E ).

Florida Registration

https://www.flhsmv.gov/dmv/forms/BTR/87002.pdf

From https://www.flhsmv.gov/dmv/FFFVO.pdf:

An initial application for the title and registration of a
homemade vessel must be filed by the vessel owner with
the county tax collector office. In making application for
an initial Florida title, the owner of a homemade vessel less
than 16 feet in length shall submit to the county tax collector
Form HSMV 82040, along with Form HSMV 87002 and a
$5.25 titling fee (for electronic title) or $7.75 (for paper title).
Upon receipt of the application, the Department may elect
to conduct a visual inspection of the vessel to insure that it
meets the legal definition of a homemade vessel. The owner
of a homemade vessel 16 feet or more in length shall be
required to contact the nearest district office of the Fish
and Wildlife Conservation Commission to arrange for a
physical inspection of the vessel. At the time of inspection,
the owner of the homemade vessel shall be required to
submit an executed Form HSMV 87002 or Builder’s
Certificate to the inspecting officer. Upon satisfactory
completion of the inspection, the inspecting officer shall
provide the owner of the homemade vessel with an
executed Certificate of Inspection, FWC/DLE-126, which
must be submitted to the county tax collector along with
Form HSMV 82040, Form HSMV 87002 or Builder’s
Certificate and $5.25 titling fee (for electronic title) or $7.75
(for paper title). (Note: In addition, a registration fee based
on the length of the vessel and any applicable sales tax must
be paid.) The website for the Fish and Wildlife Conservation
Commission is www.myfwc.com.

Florida, explained differently:
- if the boat is less than 16', long, go to the local DMV with your invoices for supplies, declare a home built boat and fill the form. You will pay registration and get a title with a number, very easy.
- if the boat is longer than 16', call the FWC (see previous post) to get the boat inspected. Take the inspection form and go to the DMV as above.

2. Bring the form to Dept of Revenue located in Baton Rouge with all your receipts or you can mail in (good luck with mailing your form in). Here you will pay taxes on any materials purchased out of state or online and they will sign off on the form;
3. Bring form to you local county/parish tax collector do the same as above;

Texas. See heading in overview for homemade boats. You need an inspection and assignment of hull ID number to begin.
