Documented Vessel Name Change

Does anyone know when you can legally repaint the name and home port of a USCG documented vessel. We are in the process of buying a used documented vessel and the documentation paper work is being handled as part of the sale.

Do I have to wait until the name is officiallly changed with the Coast Guard or once the change has been applied for it is ok to do so?

I have searched this site and the USCG site without finding an answer.

Don't know the technicality but we changed the name on our boat right after we applied for the new documentation with the new name.

Re: Documented Vessel Name Change

I would change the name any time after sending in the paperwork, but I honestly don't know the exact legality of doing so. I would have copies of the paperwork on the vessel in case you get stopped for any reason.
