joel_T, so you didn't have to show any paperwork, just the hull number?
I filled out the 1 page OSMB (Oregon State Marine Board) title and registration request form that only asked for the HIN. No MSO or other extra paperwork was required. I hope that's it anyway ....I haven't recieved anything back yet. I'll post back when I get it....I'd imagine next week some time.
I got back a request (from the Oregon State Marine Board) for "An original Manufacturers Statement or Certificate of Origin, (MSO) that was provided at the time of purchase."
I got no such thing and called my dealer explaining. They didn't understand either and said they'd contact Hobie. Meanwhile I called the state and asked if a picture of the HIN would work and they said yes.
My dealer did call back and said Hobie was sending them something they had to sign and then forward to me.
It depends how itchy I get whether I wait for the MSO or just mail in the HIN picture.
