Also wtih the same problem, but...
I do have the same situation presently.
I'm a new owner of a Van D' Stadt from 1976 without any registry papers.
I bought the boat in Holand and according with some non oficial information I collected, it's a common situation for boats with such age.
The only "oficial" document I have is the Sales Agreement between me and the former owner. On this document it's possible to find the boat's features, the price agreed and of course and my personal details, so to prove that I'm the present owner of the boat.
From this, I'll continue to present this document in whatever situation needed. Port of call authorities, insurance companies and so on!
Guess it'll keep on working!
Furthermore, a complete registry process rounds up the amount of 500 euros, (Latvia flag hoisted).
