Coast Guard Documentation to Stay Legal in the Summer and After

Summer may be winding down, but there’s still time to get out on the water. Once August ends and Fall begins, it’s not like bodies of water are going away. There’s plenty of time to enjoy what the water has to offer in 2020, whether you’re doing so for recreation or business purposes. That said, you want to do it right. Being in legal compliance with the Coast Guard is important whenever you go out on the water. The last thing anyone wants is to get into a situation where they’re penalized for lacking documentation. We offer all of the Coast Guard documentation you need in a simple, easy to use fashion. 

Coast Guard Documentation for Your Vessel 

“How do I know you’re going to have the right documentation for my boat?” That’s a question we’ve heard time and time again, really since we started this business. That’s why our site offers as many different forms of documentation as possible. You can get your initial documentation here, as well as the means to renew it, or even reinstate it, should the renewal deadline pass. When you’re changing the name of your vessel, your hailing port, getting a preferred ship’s mortgage, MARAD small vessel waiver, or anything else, the documents you need are right here.

Documentation Accessibility 

Think of everything that you do in a typical day. Get up, eat, work, meetings, family, social life, and everything else – not a lot of room for filling out boat documentation in there, if any. We understand that. This is why we made a site that’s fully mobile optimized. That way, you can access our site from practically anywhere at any time. So long as you’re connected to the internet, you can fill out these forms when you want. Have a few minutes between meetings? Getting a ride somewhere? Lunch arriving late? Should you find yourself in possession of a few extra minutes you did not know you were going to have, you can fill out these forms then. It’s one more way that we make the process fit into your schedule. 

Document Processors on Your Side 

If there’s one thing we know about vessel documentation, it’s that filling these documents out isn’t anyone’s idea of fun. One of the worst parts is feeling like you have to go back through what you filled in, just to make sure there aren’t any typos or little mistakes. After all, those are the kinds of things that can make it so that the Coast Guard sends your forms back to you without documentation. That doesn’t happen with us. Our documentation processors look over everything you’ve done, finding and fixing little mistakes (should they exist). 

Documentation for Every Stage of Vessel Ownership

From the time when you’re researching your vessel, to your purchase, to the upkeep, to the time you sell it, we have all of the forms you might potentially need. If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to reach out to us at (800) 535-8570.
