-The buyer must complete, sign, and have notarized the TC 96-215 form

-Whomever did the repair on the boat, if any, must complete, sign and have notarized the mechanical statement

-All receipts, if any, will need to be provided with documentation to acquire approval from the state to title and register a rebuilt or salvaged boat
