Dog, my boat is both titled in the state of Maryland and documented by the USCG. I think your point is, and I agree, that the USCG documentation supercedes the state title. But that doesn't change the fact that the state of California may wish to record a title on Yountman's boat at the time of sale. Note that as soon as the seller signs the bill of sale, the boat is no longer federally documented -- the seller's documentation is invalidated by the bill of sale -- until the buyer re-documents the boat in his own name.
