How Long Does Documentation Take?

I recently purchased my boat and have to had the name change and documentation paperwork processed through the USCG. How long does this process usually take?

I have temporary registration that was provided during the sale, but I was told that the name on the vessel could not be changed until the coasties authorized it and I have all of my permanent registration. While I am not in any great hurry for this to happen, I am holding off repainting the top stripe and stern until I have the proper paperwork.

Thankfully this is just one project out of the several hundred I have lined up and have plenty of things to keep me busy, I was just curious if someone has been through the process recently.

Daniel

mine took only about 5-6 weeks 1.5 years ago. It used to be that you had to certify that you had the numbers and name on the boat before the doc was released. There is no reason you cant remove a name for maintenance (painting), just delay putting any back on until you get your doc.....?
