The Manufacturer Statement of Origin (MSO) is a document that verifies ownership of a water vessel. You should receive a blank MSO form when you purchase any water vessel. This document is usually found in the owner manual packet.
You may need your MSO as documentation for vessel titles or future sale registers. Requirements to title or register vessels vary by state and so do guidelines for an MSO.
Customers should check state requirements to determine if an MSO is needed to title or register their vessel. State parks divisions, fish and game departments and departments of motor vehicles may oversee titles and registration in a particular state.
As the seller of record, DICK'S Sporting Goods must complete an MSO when notarization is needed. Because the need for an MSO varies by state, DICK'S Sporting Goods will complete MSOs in-store or by mail through the DICK'S Sporting Goods' Corporate Customer Service team, only at the customer's request.
Please note that store notary services may vary. Customers can contact DICK'S Sporting Goods' Customer service at 1-866-677-4771 for more information.
