Wrong call sign on USCG documentation

I bought my Cal 39 over a year ago and had it registered by the US Coast Guard. A few months later I checked the USCG vessel database and unfortunately, it shows the ship station call sign from the previous owner (WCY1234).

Since then I registered and received my own SSB Ship's Station License from the FCC, along with a shiny new call sign.

I am now renewing the registration (Free?? I did NOT expect that from the US governent!) but there's nowhere to update the call sign. Just an address update.

Any ideas?
