Dear BoatU.S. Member,

Do you own a federally documented vessel? The U.S. Coast Guard is proposing to charge an annual fee of $26.00 for the renewal of certificates of documentation for recreational boats. While the Coast Guard charges to issue new certificates of documentation for boats, currently there is no charge for annual renewal.

This fee will only apply if your boat is federally documented and would be in addition to any state registration fees. For current information on federal vessel documentation, visit the United States Coast Guard Documentation Center.

We encourage you to share your thoughts with the Coast Guard on this proposal before May 3rd, 2013, by going to

Please forward this email to fellow boaters with documented vessels. If you have any additional questions, please contact BoatU.S. Government Affairs at

Thank you for being a BoatU.S. member!

Ah crap, I did search the site first, internal and through google. I was surprised there was not a thread on it already. Sorry, ugh.
