    Check to see how your father's boat was titled. Was it in his name personally or in the name of his revocable trust? If the former, you should consider retaining a probate lawyer to help you with doing a summary administration probate proceeding. Good luck!

    Yes, you can execute the lady bird deed. However, it is not necessary, since the home is already protected from Medicaid state recovery by being held in the trust. You will avoid probate too, since the home is titled in the trust.
