And since we all are helping you out with this, we all will send you bills for our services, OK? or better yet give us the email address of your "friend" and we can cut out the middleman.
I will email my friend Dave this thread and let him 'pay you' himself. Thanks for the advice on calling the Coast Guard. I already put a call into their office.

I am glad you posted. Dave will only sail the boat in the US, as far as I know. I also know the seller paid off the mortgage and Dave paid cash for the sailboat.

I will confirm with the USCG tomorrow. I called many times today but the system either kicked me out or said they couldn't accept my request/ call at this time when I got through to the appropriate department.

Thanks again.
