Solving Common United States Coast Guard Documentation Problems

United States Coast Guard documentation

Do you have questions about United States Coast Guard documentation that it doesn’t seem like anyone is able to answer? When you reach out to so-called “experts” and professionals on Coast Guard documentation, does it feel like they take forever to get back to you (if they get back at all?) Of the many reasons that we started our site, one of the biggest was that we wanted to provide vessel owners with real resources. Instead of feeling like they were on their own when they filled out these forms, they could know that someone had their back, that real help was available if they needed it. 

What to Do If Your United States Coast Guard Documentation Expires 

Things happen. It’s far easier than some think to let your Coast Guard documentation lapse. As you have to pay it once a year, it’s easy to lose track of it. If yours expires, however, you aren’t out of luck. There are steps you can take. At our site, you can use the “Reinstatement” option. While it is a bit more of a chore than going the “Renewal” route might be, if it’s the only option available, it can help you to get out on the water legally and in compliance with the authorities quickly. 

What to Do If Your Certificate of Documentation is Destroyed 

Some may not realize this, but you actually need to have a physical, literal Certificate of Documentation. A copy won’t cut it nor will a JPG or picture on your phone or even in the “cloud.” You need to have a real version that you can hold in your hand. Should you have one that gets lost or even mutilated, you’re no longer in compliance. That said, you can get back into compliance quickly. All you have to do is to go through the “Replacement” link on our site. There, we’ll make sure that you get a new Certificate of Documentation pronto. 

Are You Worried That Your Certificate of Documentation Will Expire Soon? 

It can be a powerless feeling: that nagging suspicion in the back of your mind that your Certificate of Documentation is going to expire soon, yet not feeling like there’s anything you can do about it. However, at our site, you can. You can renew your documentation here for the year to come if it’s time. Alternatively, you could also choose to renew it for several years to come, too. That way, you have one less thing to worry about going forward. 

Fixing Concerns Before They Become Problems 

Our site makes it easier than ever to fix your documentation-related concerns. That said, we can also make it so that you don’t have to worry about some concerns, period. For example, we have the best document processors in the business. They’ll look through your forms, fixing any tiny errors, mistakes, or typos before the authorities use them as an excuse to make you go through the entire process all over again.
