So here's the long story I bought off a fellow river neighbor and I had restored the hole thing any had around 7 to 8 thousand dollars in it. I had it registers it in Cali for a year with no issues and then when I went to register it in Arizona and had found out that it was stolen back in 99so they seized it. In my research I found that there were 2 boats mine being one of them made in 94 by kachina and they both had the same HIN # so after that confusion mine was the one with the  corrected HIN. So the first thing I asked was if both the boats had the same number then how do they know they have the right boat? His answer was they were both stolen In 1999 and the other boat was recovers a while ago.So I thought that was funny and to many coincidences. So the. I found out that it was payed off by progressive so I got ahold of the person in charge with the claim and she treated me like I stole it in the first half of the conversation and then after she stopped being a bitch I told my story and she understood why I wanted the boat back even if I had to buy it back. So then 2 weeks go by and I've left countless voicemails and she finally calls me back and said that sense the boat was stolen so long ago that the claim was already written off and that she got the title signed over to this lady named aspen Sykes and she asked me if I knew who that was. I replied that's my wife and she said well then I guess your wife owns your boat so have a great day. So another week goes by because we had to wait for the game warden to be back in the office so we could sign papers  and just like that we have our boat. So I can't everyone enough for the support but damn I'm glad it over and it's parked back at my house

That's awesome.

Pretty much exactly how that should have gone.

Congratulations brother.

Have fun.

Piece of advice though.

Make an ID card and write your name, address and the Vin number on it and laminate it in resin under the dash.

Not foolproof, but today's fool isn't all that sharp.
