When I purchased my boat just over a year ago I put my name and my wife's name on the title. She was not there to sign. The broker said, "I am going to the head and will be back in a couple minutes, see if she will sign it while I am gone (wink, wink: she was 2 hours away at home). When he returned her "signature" was on the new title application. Then the broker said, "Of course if you were SELLING the boat I would have to witness her sign!"
So, why not find a notary close to you previous partner and tell him what you are doing (hey in reality you are releasing him from any liability since he IS on the title) and ask if he would accompany you to a Notary and sign the title and then you can offer to take him out for a beer for old times, both on you.>>
