Check to see why you can't register it? Has it been registered under another's name? It was to my understanding that you can re-register them. The company's that I have worked for told me that they did re-registered them when they moved them to another vessel.
You should be able to do so... Give it another try, and if you can get a person at NOAA on the line, so they can help you through the process.

My boat is a truck...And i am in the OH **** zone.
I dont have a boat...so can not register it.This is something we have ben talking about in case i am taken.My thoughts are the legal problems if i have to use it and it is registered to him.Also the public database ties...Will his name show up in the news?
There is not MOMEY switch we are given in-country.
So back to the question,
If you do not change the registry and use it..What are the legal problems?What happens?
