(1) In the event of the creation of a security interest in a boat, boathouse or floating home for which a certificate of title has been issued, the owner shall sign in an application space provided on the back and deliver the certificate of title to the person in whom the security interest was created, who shall, within 10 days thereof, present the certificate to the State Marine Board, with the name of the owner shown thereon. In the event a prior security interest holder is in possession of the certificate of title, the owner shall sign and may arrange for direct delivery by the prior security interest holder to the board. The board, upon payment of the required fee, shall issue a new certificate of title, note the change upon the records in order of priority and mail the certificate to the security interest holder first named on the certificate.
(2) Upon satisfaction of a security interest in a boat, boathouse or floating home for which a certificate of title has been issued, the security interest holder affected, if the holder is in possession of the certificate of title, shall sign a release on the certificate of title and deliver it to the security interest holder next named, if any, or if none, to the owner. In the event the security interest holder affected is not in possession of the certificate of title, the holder shall execute a release of interest to the person entitled thereto who shall promptly deliver it to the holder of the certificate of title. Within 10 days after the delivery of the certificate of title or release, the holder shall present the certificate of title and release, if any, to the board. Upon payment of the required fee, the board thereupon shall note the change upon its records and issue a new certificate of title to the first security interest holder then named, if any, otherwise to the owner.
(3) A security interest holder may without the consent of the owner assign interest in a boat, boathouse or floating home to a person other than the owner without affecting the interest of the owner or the validity or priority of the interest but a person without notice of the assignment is protected in dealing with the security interest holder until the assignee is named as security interest holder on the certificate. The assignee may have the certificate of title issued with the assignee named as security interest holder upon delivery to the board of the certificate with the signature of the assignor releasing interest together with the required fee.
