Re: documentation?

Documenting a boat is a pretty painless process. Just go to the web site and download the necessary forums and send in the paperwork with payment. You will get the documentation back and your done! If you have any questions call they are pretty helpful. I have documented two boats. The first was an original documentation and this one was just change of ownership. Both times it was easy and painless.

Re: documentation?

sailingfool,

That statement is why I called for clarification. The Documentation Center said as long as I have a clear state title it will be no problem. I was very surprised at how easy the process is. Especially after filling out all of the paperwork for my master's license.

Re: documentation?

I recently redocumented my vessel. It has to be done every year, and is a pretty straight forward process. The form you will need is a USCG form # CG-1258

This is a 4 page form, although you only "mail" (yes you have to snail mail) the first 3 pages. The 4th page is only instructions to you on how to fill it out correctly.
The current fee is $84 for the recording of the paperwork, and a $8 processing fee. So $92 total.

If you wish to write to the USCG documenting section/department it is :
NVDC (National Vessel Documentation Center)
792 TJ Jackson Drive
Falling Waters, WV. 25419

good luck....fair winds....
