Can I register a boat in tx that is not titled and I don't have a bill of sale b/c I traded for it?

No, ALL BOATS DON'T HAVE TITLES.
BUT, It is not a question of "Can I" register it, it is a question of "must I" register it, and the answer is YES YOU MUST!
You must register your boat in Texas unless your boat is a (NON-MOTERIZED) canoe, kayak, punt, rowboat, dinghy, or rubber raft (regardless of length) and is paddled, poled, or oared and sailboats under 14 feet in length when windblown.
In order to register your boat, you must have either a title from a previous owner & previous registration, OR a "Bill of Sale" and the Bill of Sale must contain:
The date of sale;
Description of the vessel and/or outboard motor (make, TX or serial number and year built);
Purchaser(s) name; and
So, whether your boat is a gift, a purchase, or a trade, you have to have a Bill of Sale, and you have to have it registered before you can legally use it.
