Re: Document or register my vessel?

I think you're giving the NJDMV too much credit; I don't have my registration in hand yet! My boat was a bankruptcy asset and I have a bill of sale from a bank (which isn't the owner of record, but which had a lien). I hope the DMV will accept the argument that the USCG, which is federally authorized to maintain ownership/title records for documented vessels, thinks the evidence I presented is OK so the DMV should too. But, again, I may be giving the NJDMV too much credit.

To the OP, sorry, didn't mean to hijack the thread. Hopefully you've figured out that documenting the vessel with the USCG can help streamline things a bit, but that the documentation process is slow.
