I want to give a huge shout out to the Department of Homeland Security/United States Coast Guard/National Vessel Documentation Center. The efficiency, ease, and speed with which they processed my renewal was absolutely amazing. On Sunday morning, November 4th, I opened my snail mail letter which contained form CG-1240, which is the renewal application. They also instructed me that I can "renew on-line" via the pay.gov website. You fill out the CG-1240 online, you can pay via credit card, and here is the big payoff.......I received my newed Certificate of Documentation in the US Postal Service mail yesterday afternoon at my home! Outstanding service! Jaybeaux PS....Don't fall for the offers for 3rd party firms to handle your re-documentation needs. It is only $26 if you go straight to the NVDC.
