Out of state vessel title, error HIN
I know the first 3 letters are the manuf ID. TTU is definitely correct as this is a Thunder powerboat, 33 LOA. TTV is the ID for Tidecraft, they dont make any boats over 20' according to the NADA.
Anyway, I am getting sent in circles. I called the Brevard tax collector again yesterday. I wanted to speak with one of their specialists, but the lady said that is not possible. When I was initially there, they did give me a copy of a paper from their book that stated this:
When the department receives an application containing an out-of-state certificate of title and the applicant is requesting a correction to the vehicle identification number (VIN), the following should be submitted:
• An original letter on letterhead stationery from the motor vehicle division of the state the certificate of title was last issued. The letter must state that the vehicle identification number on the certificate of title is incorrect and indicate the correct VIN number.
• The applicant must have a corrected certificate of title issued in that state before Florida will issue a certificate of title.
NOTE: There may be situations when the VIN number can be verified as an obvious error (i.e., the National Automobile Theft Bureau (NATB) book or VIN edit shows that an “S” should be a “5”). A Division of Motorist Services Regional office administrator/supervisor has the authority to review and authorize the correction. Instead of one of the two requirements listed above, you may accept written authorization from the administrator/supervisor on letterhead stationery.
So, I asked since it seems like just an error, if one of their superv/admins could review it. She said that only applies to cars (VIN), and then mentioned something about the marine patrol before she put me on hold. Then came back on the phone and said my best bet was to go back to the tax collector.:willynilly
So the question here is, should I go talk to the marine patrol? I dont seem to be getting anywhere with the nuts at the tax collector. Thanks
