I am in the process of changing over the Documentation
for my 1987 Pearson
39-2 to be able to Charter
it. Has anyone else gone through the process of proving your boat was built in the US when the manufacturer/builder isn't around anymore? I know the boat was built in RI, but the information I received from the Coast Guard is that I need the following:
Evidence of the facts of build may be either a completed, original form CG-1261, or, other original document containing the same information, executed by a person having personal knowledge of the facts of build because that person:
(a) constructed the vessel.
(b) supervised he actual construction of the vessel
(c) is an officer or employee of the company which built the vessel, and, has examined the records of the company concerning the facts of build of the vessel.
Anyone have any insights?
