Does anyone have any experience in releasing preferred marine
mortgage on their documented vessel? I recently decided to payoff my mortgage and wanted it recorded by the USCG. In searching on line I found a USCG site with instructions and format for submission of release documents. There was no mention of a fee. I then found another site with USCG logo that had an online format and a submission fee of $145. Is the USCG charging
a fee to record
the release or did I stumble onto a third party service
that is charging
a fee for what looks like a simple process?
