It would have been nice to mention that in your first post. I don't spose you saw the relevance.

Not to worry.

Old owner de-flags. Then you pay. Then you re-flag if you want to.
A US built boat that is foreign flagged has to be imported into the US before it can be sold in the US. Costs about $500 in fees. There is no duty but the boat has to be imported as technically it has been exported ( once it is foreign flagged it is deemed to have been exported ) even though it might never have been to its flagged country.

Actually I like the Marshall Islands flag. Much prettier than the Belgium one.
