Re: Maritime Documentation Center
I just received my official USCG NVDC renewal notice and renewed online for $26.00. I did not see a 5 year renewal option. I'm not sure I would have done it anyway. There is a disclaimer that all fees are non-refundable, even if the vessel does not qualify for a renewed Certificate. I imagined, if one were to sell their vessel, they would lose the remaining period.
The website had a big red warning that they just reopened on Jan 29 and provide a link to their "process". No doubt that means they are backed up. I have a serious bias against government operations that have absolutely no economic motivation to deliver service. In every real business, stuff happens, fair or unfair, and you just have to deal with it and catch up asap. These are the good guys, of course.
