So Iv always heard that a mud motor or go devil doesn't have to be registered in Texas because its not viewed as an outboard and what not. I read a few things that got me double thinking it. I bought a go devil frame and put a honda 4 stroke on it. I shouldn't have to register it correct? Just wanted some opinions.

Lol , are you talking registering the motor? Or the vessel its pushing?
Anything moving besides paddle power has to be registered on public.

Title for the motor but no registration...BadLander is right on the boat registration. I don't have any clue what they do for motors that are homemade and you want a title.

No my boat is registered thats all good. just read somewhere that the mud motor has to be registered? I always thought differently, thats why Im asking for opinions on here. The motor is basically homemade a go devil frame with a honda 4 stroke on it.

Call TPWD. If they can't give you a straight answer, call one of the wardens in your area

From what I remember, the only reason to title the motor is if it's gets stolen, they can trace motor back to you because of SN.

TPWD says the motors have to be titled. Why, so they can tax you for it and make money on registering it.

I personally do not have my mud motor titled, I have the MSO if there is ever a question of ownership.

My boat is registered and titled, been checked by State and Federal Gw's in different states and have never been asked to see a title for the boat or motor.

If my rig, boat or motor ever gets stolen I do not want it back anyway, I have insurance. Even if it gets stolen you would not need a title to recover as long as you have the serial number and can prove ownership, IE mso, bill of sale, or receipt.
