it will be better if the "guy" applies for a title for the boat and motor. (see below)
in missouri boats that were operated with out a motor (rowed or paddled) do not need to be registered or titled, but all boats (over 12') operated with a motor require a title and the outboard motor also needs a title/registration.
my suggestion is to have the current owner go with you to the state registration office with a bill of sale and any other proof of ownership forms he may have to assist you in applying for a title and registration for the boat and motor.
in missouri you have 60 days from the date of purchase to transfer ownership and title.
TITLE PENALTY: A TITLE PENALTY FEE OF $10.00 FOR EACH 30 DAYS OF DELINQUENCY, NOT TO EXCEED A TOTAL OF $30.00, SHALL BE
IMPOSED FOR FAILURE TO APPLY FOR A CERTIFICATE OF TITLE WITHIN 60 DAYS AFTER PURCHASE
the following site has application for title and registration forms for the previous owner and or you to fill out.

In Missouri, if you don't have the original title, then you can't get a Missouri title. I bought a boat in Michigan and brought it down to Missouri with nothing more than a bill of sale and I played HELL getting that boat licensed. In fact, I never did actually license THAT boat.. I bought a wreck that a local character had because he had a title and then used THAT title to license my boat.. I just took the VIN number off his title and stamped it into the overhead in an obvious position and nobody ever questioned it. That boat has been owned by at least 3 other people that I know of now and has never been questioned.

If it's stolen and U are caught that's a bad thing. Ask the seller to get a duplicate title if he can't than best to pass.
