Re: USCG Documentation Turnaround - 9 Days Total

FINALLY got word that they approved our documents.


New twist though. I went on to their online document tracking website. When I entered the official number it said "no data found".


So I call up and the nice lady (they have all been nice and friendly when you call), tells me that probably means it was approved and then she verifies that it was approved.


I'd really like to know what idiot set up their tracking website. Don't you think it would be a little more logical to change the status to "approved" rather than, WE HAVE NO RECORD OF YOUR BOAT.

Re: USCG Documentation Turnaround - 9 Days Total

Mine was lost in the spam filter as absolutely nothing in the sender name or subject line even remotely references USCG

By the time I found it the returned registration had expired so I get to start all over again.

Same happened to me recently, their packet status inquiry system really sucks.

However, they did turn my renewal around in about 48 hours.

Staff at NVDC are always helpful. I assume a big part of the issue is lack of budget for automation and staff reallocated to Homeland Security tasks...much of this process could be fully automated, but their "eRegistration" system has been on hold for ages.
