US Coast Guard doc

I sent in a renewal, let it expire more than 45 days

Now they tell my they are months behind in fact they say they are working on renewals submitted 1/31

I need this to obtain a season mooring.

Any ideas to have this expedited?

Re: US Coast Guard doc

Probably no hope Jimbo. They are all processed in West Virginia and I doubt that once you fall outside of the queue, changing the order of processing would not be easy. I hope I'm wrong, or someone else has another idea.

Re: US Coast Guard doc

Can't use your state reg to get a mooring?

Sometimes they have an expedient fee, like with the DTOPS fees. You might ask.

have you tried to call them and throw yourself at their mercy?

Ask them how much you should grovel, explain you were a fool and blew it... tell them you can post a video to youtube showing your grovelling.....


It worked for me, and I was stunned at their helpfulness with an issue I had, and they did all over the phone and with a fax.....

Not part of the government that I hear about in the news.......

Re: US Coast Guard doc

Just got the registration back on our "new to us" Beneteau 351. Sent the application in on 1/24/11 and extrapolating the schedule from the USCG Registration web site, looked like it would be processed on about 4/25/11. Then for some unknown reason, the new registration showed up on 3/21/11 and the web site schedule jumped from 12/24/11 to 1/24/11 in less than a week. Bottom line, it does take longer than expected, but it can beat the published schedule. Good luck.

Priority Handling Criteria


Background

Requests for expedited handling of vessel documentation applications should be sent to the National Vessel Documentation Center (NVDC) with all of the following:

The name and official number or other unique identifier of the vessel.
The full and correct name of the applicant(s)
The date the application was sent to the NVDC (and if, available, the date of receipt by the NVDC).
The reason priority handling should be approved.
The planned departure date and location (city, state, country) if for foreign travel.
The special delivery need (FedEx, UPS, etc. with account number or prepaid packaging) or other special instructions
SPECIAL NOTE: Priority requests must be signed by the vessel owner or managing owner and contain the following statement: “I (we) understand that making a false statement when applying for vessel documentation may subject the vessel to seizure by and forfeiture to the United States government. (46 USC §12151, formerly 46 USC § 12122)”
Bold letters and the words “PRIORITY REQUEST” should appear on the first page of any submission requesting expeditious handling. Requests not accompanied by applications or other paperwork may be faxed to 304 271 2410.

Re: US Coast Guard doc

I still don't understand what mooring would require USCG doc, but won't accept your NYS registration. If you don't have a state reg, you could "quickly" get one by standing in line at the DMV for an afternoon. Assuming you're not trying to evade taxes, this seems the path of least resistance.
