Beware Deceptive Solicitation for USCG Doc Renewal

Published by under Liveaboard Topics

Boat Owners Association of The United States (BoatUS) Consumer Protection Department is advising boaters with vessels having a US Coast Guard Certificate of Documentation to be wary of any letter arriving by US mail offering renewal. An increasing number of BoatUS members have complained that these letters direct them to websites that may be mistaken for the actual US Coast Guard Vessel Documentation Center located in Falling Waters, West Virginia, and appear to show a significant increase in the annual fee to renew US Coast Guard (USCG) documentation.

Weekly “Swap Meet”

Many of us have unused boat parts laying around or are  looking for a good buy on a needed item.  One way to get your information out is with the weekly V-Man checkin.

Every Monday evening at 8pm, VHF channel 71, boats at Shilshole Marina turn on their VHF radios to practice radio protocol, hear the latest security announcements, offers to buy, sell or trade items, and to do a dock by dock roll call.  It is a directed net which means there is someone moderating the conversations so all can participate without confusion or conflict.  Check out more info at Shilshole V-Man
