Has anyone been successful when renewing US Vessel Documentation
via the new online system?
I understand that that the USCG Vessel Documentation
Office has a new program that requires paying a $26.00 fee, and doing it online here
. I have been trying to do it, but have had no success. I get an error message that says the information I have entered does not match their records for my boat. It just has you give them your last name, Official Number, Zip Code, plus your email
address. What I am giving them matches what is on my current
Documentation Form, except that they have not had email
The error message does say: "If the information provided is correct, please contact the NVDC directly to resolve the issue (304-271-2400)."
Of course that number is busy, but it is a clue that something is wrong with their web site. I suspect that their computer is expecting the name of the boat to be entered, but the online form does not provide a space for it.
I hope to hear from one of you who has gotten to the bottom of it.
