If a boat is totalled by an insurance company and then is bought and salvaged, does it then carry a salvage title like cars do? What if there is no indication on the title that the boat was once totalled or salvaged? Does it depend on the state you are in? Thanks.

This is strictly governed by the jurisdiction which governs the transaction. In some places, the new title is labeled salvage and in others, there is no such label. Check with your local Department of Natural Resources or Department of Fisheries. They can set you straight as to the regulations in your area.
