Having some difficulties here. The purchase
is done but am having problems registering the boat and it would appear the boatyard wants to see a copy of the registration
in order to launch the boat for the summer season.
First attempt: I tried registering in UK with a Bermuda
address but they don't consider that a resident of UK so declined. I do not have any other addresses to use.
Second attempt: I am trying to document with USCG but the Bill of Sale
that the broker drew up and had notarized by both seller and buyer is not sufficient for USCG. Now the seller is absolutely refusing to notarize a USCG-specific Bill of Sale
. So I'm not sure I'm going to be able to document.
Third attempt: I looked on website for State of California registration
and it states quite clearly that the boat must be located in California
Fourth attempt!: Someone suggested registering in State of Delaware. I may try this. But the application also asks which state boat will be used in.
Does anyone have any other suggestions? This has been a very trying process and the registration is turning out to be just as much of a headache as the purchase
Thanks all ahead of time.
