US Documentation for UK boat?

documenting a boat from overseas i believe is complicated and you will need a person who does that for a living do it for you.
to be documented the boat has to be traced back to the original factory and first owner and shows a clear title much like a house from the first owner and factory through the succession of owners to you. on my boats documentation for a us made and owned boat it lists all the owners and the dated of manufacture. just by buying the boat from the current owner does not assure you of a clear title or the ability to document the boat. i would make sure the boat is documentable before buying it.
