306.550. 1. When the certificate forms are printed, the director of revenue shall cause to be printed on the reverse side, a form for transfer of title to be used by the owner if the owner sells the registered outboard motor; to be completed and signed by the owner and delivered to the purchaser or transferee, as evidence of title.
2. When an outboard motor is transferred, the seller shall remove the registration number decal from the outboard motor. The purchaser shall within thirty days thereafter file an application for registration of the outboard motor in the purchaser's name, accompanied by the transfer of title duly executed, and accompanied by the registration fee which shall be the same as though no former registration had been made.
3. The department of revenue may issue a one-time temporary registration number authorizing the operation of an outboard motor by a purchaser for not more than thirty days. A temporary registration issued under this section is not renewable. The department of revenue shall provide the temporary registration numbers. A person may purchase a temporary registration number from the department of revenue with proof of purchase of an outboard motor, or from the dealer, when the outboard motor is purchased. The department shall provide temporary registration numbers to registered dealers in this state in sets of ten registration numbers. The fee for the temporary registration number shall be two dollars for each registration number issued. A dealer may not charge more than two dollars for each registration number issued by the dealer. A registration number is valid for the legal operation of an outboard motor only by the purchaser of the outboard motor from the date the certificate is issued for either thirty days or until proper registration has been obtained, whichever first occurs. A registration number may not be transferred or displayed on any outboard motor other than the outboard motor for which it was issued. The department of revenue shall determine the size and numbering configuration, construction, and color of the temporary registration number.
4. The department of revenue or the dealer or the dealer's authorized agent shall insert the date of issuance and expiration, year, make and manufacturer's identification number of the outboard motor on the temporary registration number when issued to the buyer. The dealer shall also insert the dealer's number on the temporary registration number. Every dealer that issues a temporary registration number shall keep, for inspection by authorized officers, an accurate record of each temporary registration number issued by the dealer by recording the registration number, buyer's name and address, year, make and manufacturer's identification number of the outboard motor on which the registration number is to be used, and the date of issuance.
