You are right on 1 & 2 as that pre-purchase agreement stipulates the time frame for everything and conditions. I wouldn't go any further until a faxed copy with the owners signature is received period.

As for the titling - if it is not a US documented boat - do it yourself. All you have to do is have the owner sign the title to you - walk over to DMV and have it transferred. I would though suggest a title search (which you can do yourself as well) to make sure their are no liens on it.

If you are not comfortable with the process - back out and deal with someone whom does business your way would be my suggestion. Plenty of boats out there - and perhaps the lackluster response is because they are busy fixing some items that were listed etc... but who knows....
