  1. hmm, that is interesting. So the registration is the only proof of ownership for a boat in Alabama? I guess I will go on Monday and try to register it. thanks
  2. Thanks for the good info guys. Yeah, I may not be using the right terminology. I paid in cash, so there were no checks to clear. So if there is no title in AL, what does the bank hold if there is a lien? Once the lean is released, will there be anything to sign over? or can I just register the boat in my name?
  3. So I bought my boat two weeks ago, with the agreement that I would receive the title once the lien was paid off. The seller assured me that it would take no more than a week. I waited the week, and now this week I have heard nothing from the guy. He hasn't answered or returned my calls or texts. I am not too concerned yet, but if I don't hear from him by next week, I will be faced with a decision. He seemed like an excellent guy and was accommodating and never gave them impression that he was trying to set me up. I met the guy at his house, so I know where he lives, but if he wasn't the rightful owner of the boat, or does not have the title, what would the course of action be? Should I go to his house and see what's up? Would I get law enforcement involved or is this a civil matter? I have bought and sold dozens of cars where I would pay up front and receive the title once the lien is released, so this is the first time I have ever potentially had an issue. The agreement is stated on the bill of sale. Like I said, I am still giving him the benefit of the doubt, but after next week, I will be convinced that there is a problem. Has anyone had to deal with something like this before?

    New Phone Time!

    I haven't read a whole lot about the Iphone 5, but like I said, the Iphone 4 really doesn't offer me anything more than what the 3GS does, except facetime, which I know has been an option on droids for quite some time. I like the Iphone, I think it is a quality phone, but it is still expensive even with an upgrade, whereas I can use my upgrade and get a nice Droid for $50, maybe even free depending on the promotion. Maybe I should hold off making my decision until the Iphone 5 comes out.
  5. I was hoping to find something a little closer, but I will keep that in mind. Thanks

    New Phone Time!

    So it is time for the 2 year upgrade and I want to change things up a little bit. I currently have the Iphone 3GS. I have had an Iphone since it first came out, and after my wife dropped her's in the toilet and upgraded to the Iphone 4g, I am just really not impressed with it. Other than face time, I do not see what more it offers over the 3gs. So now I am looking at droids and blackberry's. My only real requirements would be a web browser and email. I would like to be able to access my school email (hotmail) which I could not do on my IPhone. I will not conduct business with the phone, just standard recreational use. I am not sure how I will like going back to a non-touch screen phone, but I am open to the idea. So what do you all use and what are your opinions? Who has had an iphone and switched to something else, or something else and switched to an Iphone. I want to hear real opinions, not the customer service lady at AT&T. Thanks!
  7. My wife's Aunt and Uncle introduced to a great boating drink. Wine Spritzers. You choice of wine with La Croix sparkling water. Kind of girly but delicious and refreshing.
  8. I have read that a lot of people have problems with the radio's and mine does not work either. What is a replacement option that will not require a lot of wiring and new installation. Any that will connect to the harness that is currently on the radio? I am not very mechanically inclined, but I feel like this is something that I could do myself. Thanks
  9. I am having this same problem with my 2001 186 SSI. The depth finder does not show a reading. Are there any tricks to try and reset it or do I just need to get a new one? Is replacing the transponder something I could do myself, or would it require a mechanic.
  10. Can anyone refer me to a quality Chap dealer or mechanic within reasonable driving distance of Columbus, GA?
  11. Hello All, I recently purchases a 2001 Chapparal 186 SSI. This is my first boat ever. Took it out for a couple hours and love it. However there are a few things that need attention on the boat. I hope that I can learn a lot here. First question is where can I buy boat accessories that are boat specific? I have done some searching and have not found anything solid. thanks! Bearclaw
