US Documentation for UK boat?

is your boat from the uk or us origin?
if it is from the uk i would still be wary about buying a boat from offshore without making sure the boat has a squeaky clean title. a maritime lein goes with the boat and not the owner and could have been on the boat from 3 owners ago. a friend of mine bought a swan in the mediterranean and 3 years after he bought the boat they tracked the boat down and he had to pay a $37,000 yard bill from a previous owner and he had no recourse.
