Question: When buying a used boat in Missouri (by another Missouri resident) do the BOW NUMBERS change when I license the boat or do the numbers stay the same for the life of the boat.

Thanks.

I bought 2 boats used in missouri, the numbers stayed the same, my son bought one of my boats, the numbers stayed the same until he moved to texas, then he had to change them, when he moved back to Mo. they changed again. As I understand it the numbers stay the same until you title it in a new state.

The numbers stay with the boat.   I believe they are printed on the title.  

Correct.  You CAN be issued fresh numbers when you register/retitle a boat, but if you don't request it they stay the same.

Also, your boat number and your registration number are different. Mine are at least. I found out that somebody went into the dmv and bought my registration tag earlier this spring. It was an ordeal trying to register my boat this summer when the registration renewal was due. They kept trying to tell me that I had already gotten my registration and didn’t want to believe when I told them that I, in fact, did not have up to date registration papers.
