Re: Caribbean, What works and doesn't

Have a question.
Boats going to be hauled at Clarke’s Court In Grenada on May 31th. My USCG documentation expires May 31 th.
Between then and now I’ll be in the states for 2 weeks. Leaving the boat in St. Lucia.
I go to the web and it says.
You can renew your documentation for multiple years.
If you renew earlier then 60 days they will move up the date for renewals to match the month you requested renewal.
We have a US mailing address but no way to get the actual physical paper when in the Caribbean.
When you attempt to renew on the internet the only option is one year although the instructions say you can do multiple years. The doesn’t allow it.
The government site says you can get expedited renewal but gives no way to do it via web.
Has anyone run into this problem?
How did you handle it.
Phone calls direct you to the website. No live human voice.
