Documentation Reminder
« on: May 12, 2020, 08:56:05 AM »

Just a heads up.  As every year, I almost fell for the letter from the Vessel Documentation Portal offering to renew my documentation for the princely sum of $75.  The last fee I paid directly to USCG was $26, if I remember correctly.  Remember these guys are private company offering to renew your documentation for a healthy fee.

Good reminder, thanks. I don’t use their service, but get the letter every year. They’re certainly persistent.

Good timing.  I just received my annual letter from them last month.  About 2 weeks later I received my renewal from the Coast Guard.  You are correct $26 vs $75

If I'm not mistaken, there are a couple of companies doing the same thing...or one company that keeps changing their name.
So....everyone be careful.  I fell for it about 3-4 years ago.  Never again.

Just bringing this topic back to the top of the page as a reminder....
The REAL Coast Guard documentation office only charges $26 to renew.  Don't fall for CG look-a-likes that charge $75.

Also, I recently saw that starting in 2022, the CG office will only renew for a full 5 years, $130.  No more year to year renewals.
