From Virginia's Dept of Game and Inland Fisheries:

Documented Vessels
Vessels documented by the U.S. Coast Guard cannot be titled in Virginia. Though there is no requirement that documented vessels be registered, owners may register them if desired. The registration decals may be useful if traveling to another state that requires display of registration decals. Contact the Department for an application or use the application provided at this site and prominently write "Documented Vessel" at the top.

Probably not an issue..since Va. doesn't require it. As Long as you have your documentation papers. It wouldn't hurt to ask.
