Thanks. Very odd system. It says a recreational vessel is allowed to just add more fees in the other box and put a note in comments. This went into effect just a couple of months ago.

This sentence was most informative.......

Beginning January 1, 2022, recreational CODs will be issued for a validity period of 5 years.
It's optional for now, but becomes standard in '22. I wonder if they'll refund if you cancel your document in under 5 years. There is no multi-year discount on the price schedule (even though they save the processing work each year). As I felt, when the fee first jumped, this is no more than a money grab.

In the harsh marine environment, something is always in need of repair. Margaritas fix everything.
