changing boat name in Canada

I've recently purchased a boat and I'm changing the name of my boat (unregistered) and I've already filled out the MMSI annex A form online at Industry Canada. I'm not getting a licenced MMSI. So my question is, besides notifying my insurance company and my marina of the name change, is there any other procedures or hoops I have to jump through?
Thanks in advance
Cheers

Re: changing boat name in Canada

If it's not registered (which is a different thing) and has over 10HP motor then you have to license it (which is free)

Licensing a pleasure craft - Transport Canada

If it's already licensed you need to go to the website and update the info on the license - i actually think you can do this online.

Quote:
If you change your name, address, or particulars of the pleasure craft after you obtain a Pleasure Craft Licence, you must update your licence.

You may renew or update a licence by regular mail or online, using the procedures outlined above at Obtaining a Pleasure Craft Licence.

Thanks Alctel, I forgot to mention that the boat is already licensed.
