    Yes, you should worry if the boat was stolen, though a title search will reveal this. It's very probable they've already run the registration numbers through the stolen boats data base. It it was on the list, they would have seized your boat, so this is in your favor, though not a guarantee.

    The Oregon State Marine Board is who handles the title and registration of boats there. An inspection is customary, so have receipts for everything. Th engine serial number will also be checked, so be prepared. Basically they'll check the HIN against the hull registration number to make sure it's the right one for the boat and they'll run the numbers through the stolen stuff data bases. Pay your taxes and fees and they'll send you a fresh registration and new title.
