You are trying to get your business in order so that you can have your commercial vessel ready to get started and your new business venture can get off the ground. You have done everything you think that you need to do, but you keep having trouble getting your Certificate of Documentation (COD) from the United States Coast Guard (USCG). You have sent in the paperwork multiple times and have it returned to you time and again because of errors or omissions and getting someone on the phone to talk to you has been nothing but frustrating. If you are having trouble dealing with the USCG Documentation Center, know that you are not alone and here at Vessel Documentation Online we have a solution for you.
Frustration with USCG Center
Several aspects of the registration process can be frustrating. The application for first-time registration can be a bit confusing to someone that has never done it before, and there is not much in the way of guidance on the form itself or on the Documentation Center’s website. If you do have questions, there is a phone number you can use to call the center, but the phones are only manned for certain hours just four days a week, and not on the weekends.
