Your statement about any boat over 40 feet being required to be documented is not correct. The USCG regulation requires documentation for "any vessel of at least five net tons which engages in the fisheries on the navigable waters of the United States or in the Exclusive Economic Zone, Great Lakes trade, or coastwise trade..." Vessels used exclusively for recreation may be but are not required to be documented, and length is not an issue.
