Documents needed to buy a sailboat

My friend just (this past Saturday) bought a 31 foot Catalina and I am doing the research for him on what he needs so he can male sure it is 'his own'. He has a business in NY and bought it using the business name. He is arranging to rent a slip in CT. I believe the boat is located in RI so he will be buying it there. Pther than insurance, can someone let me know what items he needs to complete to make it officially his?

I assume he needs to register it in CT. He asked me to research documenting the boat with the Coast Guard but I am not sure exactly what he specifically needs to do to get that done. What else should we be working on to make sure this is all done properly?

Thanks for the Boat Buying 101 tutorial.
