Long shot

Postby Disturbedwrench » Sat Dec 12, 2020 8:52 pm

I know this is a long shot but I’m looking for the previous owner of a 28’ express that was in the Port Clinton or Sandusky area until 2007/08. The current owner never got the title. He never did anything with the boat and now wants to sell it. I am hoping someone might remember this boat and/or the previous owners name. Might make getting a new title easier and I could make a more educated offer on it. The boat was named Bar-be-Lee and then changed to Time Out.
Thanks for any help anyone can offer.

Interesting...Docking in that area for the last five years, I always keep up with, and remember the names of Big M's I see around the area. Is the boat in Mi. now? Where did you find it (Boat Trader, want ads, etc...) ? You could always try the facebook page or ask some of the guys on the Great Lakes Marinette Club site. Try posting a photo on here, maybe someone will remember it.

I found it setting in a driveway and just stopped to ask. Yes it’s in southwest mi now. I tried to add a photo but it tells me they’re to large. I’ll see if one of my kids can help, when they wake up.

I would start by looking up the registration number. Does that state issue titles to a boat? Find out who they have listed as the owner. Otherwise, it is easy in some states to get a title for a re-constructed car/boat or for storage fees.
