    Default Properly done??

    What would be the proper thing to do if you found a snow machine in the woods about 25 feet from the parking area. Its wasnt hidden ,had key in it,most all the snow aroound it had melted so im asuming it had been there a few weeks. Called the troopers when i got home with machine. It wasnt reported stolen. Called them today, a couple years later, to see if its still not reported stolen and it isnt.. So,,anything else? Wanting to sell it,,not much of a snow machiner myself.

    Question OK!

    First does it work? Does it have tags on it? If somebody does buy it, it will need a bill of sale to get legal tags for it. Or maybe it will be a great fly in cabin machine out in the bush! Any way you look at it I think you got lucky and someone else will get a machine at a good price.
    Good Luck!!!

    I'd do what Dupont suggests just to CYA.
    I may be slow, but I get where I'm going!

    This is probably a dumb questions but...humor me. How can someone legally sell a snowmobile that they found? Has a check of the serial number not revealed a legal owner? How do you know it's not a stolen sled that the owner would like to have back? What steps have been taken to locate the rightful owner? It just seems odd that a sled would be parked 25 feet from a parking lot with the key in it and not be either stolen and abandoned or left deliberately by a remote property owner who expects to come back and find it where they left it.

    I'm just confused on the logic here. Is this legal? I'd be very leery of buying it myself, under the circumstances.

    Dee..The machine when i found it was in an area where most of the snow was gone ,pretty open ground thats about it. So that tells me it had been there a week or alot longer.Once i got it home I called the State troopers and gave them the serial number. They said its not reported stolen. Now that i want to sell it a few years later, I checed with the troopers again and still no report of it being stolen. So...What else do you do. I went to Dmv they said the troopers and them share the same info so it wouldnt be reported stolen on there computers either. But they said I can fill out a new regisration form and make it officially in my name.Any other things you can think of? The keys were in i t when i found it, and if somebody was coming back for it you wouod have think they would have came back sooner instead of waiting till all the snow melted. I know it sounds wierd, but thats the story......Anybody else interested in buying this????? O Dee, this wasnt really remote ,about 1/4 mile from highway on a side road with a small parking area about 90 miles from Anchorage.

    Ah, ok- I must have missed the part about "years". I was thinking you just found it a few weeks ago and were getting ready to sell it.

    Sorry and thanks for the clarification.

    Tell ya a story, i flew out a sno-go once and in the summer i was on a rescue mission and one of the guys that was along told me about a abandoned sno-go that he and his son used for target practice! Needless to say he was speechless when he found out it was mine. Point is if it ain't yours don't screw with it.
