Just curious, why would you drop documentation? In many states it is less expensive to have a documented boat than a state-registered boat. Also, re-selling a USCG documented boat is often easier, as getting loans on it are simplified by the USCG documentation. Finally, if you decide you want to go to the Caribbean or Canada, the USCG documentation will be useful.

BTW, you can re-document the boat for about $84 IIRC. It isn't really all that expensive to do. Go to the USCG National Vessel Documentation Center website. Fees schedule is here.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
