You have previously registered your boat with the US Coast Guard, and are now able to sail the seas whenever you want. These certificates are not designed to be granted forever, and eventually you will need to renew your boat documentation before the certificate expires. It is important to submit an early USCG renewal application form prior to the expiration date on your certificate, as it takes some time for the Coast Guard to check their records and grant you a new certificate. If you don’t want any delay in your certification, then you need to apply early.
Problems with Late Renewal
The Coast Guard Department will send you a notice to renew a month and a half before your vessel certificate expires, but you should not delay in completing the form. If your certificate expires, and you do not renew it within 30 days, then you will have to complete further paperwork to reinstate the vessel with the Coast Guard. This is another expensive form, and as usual, you will have no chance to check your application with the Coast Guard before sending it to them. You will also receive fines for submission of a late application. This can leave you without documentation for your vessel, losing money and struggling to complete the form correctly.
The Renewal Process
As it is so important to return your certificate form by the date of expiration, you need to make sure that you complete your form accurately. If you work with us, then you can expect a price of around $75. The Vessel Documentation service makes this process much easier, and we can speed the application along, so that there is no delay in granting your certificate renewal. Our processors can review your data, and work with you to correct any errors or inaccuracies before the form is sent away.
