If the boat and trailer have titles, then those documents should be ready to transfer to the buyer at the time of sale..Trying to do this by mail, with the boat in Mexico and  you and the paperwork in Oregon will involve more trust than you are likely to find...

If the boat is going to stay in Mexico, Marina Seca should be able to "expedite" the paperwork for you.  Good Luck..
