Playing the Numbers

While Flirt is in no way ready to be splashed, I did finally go out today and register her with the NJ Department of Motor vehicles. I didn’t want to, but because I am moving her to my new home, ordinances dictate that she be registered to the residence or I could be fined and Flirt could be towed away until I did register her.

It took a bit of doing, being a 1963 Sea Sprite built by the long Defunct SailStar Corporation, the DMV had no records to go by. New York, where I bought her, does not issue titles for boats that old. Boats that old also do not have a molded HIN, or Hull Identification Number.

Thankfully, Andre, the office manager was able to take care of the whole thing for me while the line workers were very useless. I guess this sort of thing is just enough out of their normal responsibilities that none of them could recall how to handle it.


Now to get her in the water next summer so this registration does not go to complete waste!

A long time sailor who has been away from the water for too long, I am working hard to bring an old and abused boat back to life. When not working on my boat, I can often be found working as a Stage Hand in Atlantic City or just out and about on my Mountain Bike. I really come off as a quiet and boring person when people first meet me.

  1. Have to watch out with those ordinances, and the neighbors. I moved my boat from TN to VA (from a recent move) and within ONE day, I found out someone from the neighborhood called the police, who gave me a warning ticket for having a trailer parked in a residential zone. A week later I moved it to the marina where the boat is now.
