Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.
If he gave you the title in exchange for you taking care of it, you need to now speak to the harbor master and inform them of what is going on and you only just took the boat over and this has been a shock so you need time to get the money together. Many harbor masters will understand and take a down payment on the $1000 and then let you get the remainder together in 30 days or so, but again you need to negotiate on this.
