Chances are very good that you will not obtain the title without paying registration fees and sales tax. Lacking any title, you will have a difficult time registering the boat as yours, and find yourself in great difficulty entering port elsewhere, let alone staying in Texas.
Seems to me that you're inviting an awful lot of trouble and extra effort by trying to avoid what amounts to a minor expense (compared to the hole in the water the boat represents) against the total cost of owning the boat.
