Blue Ribbon Certificate
BoatWiki - Definitions
A blue ribbon certificate in Coast Guard vessel documentation terms is an attachment to a letter evidencing removal from documentation. It includes a government seal and is riveted to the letter so as to be permanently attached.
When a vessel is deleted or removed from documentation, its owner may need a letter from the National Vessel Documentation center attesting to such action. This is used for subsequent state or foreign registration purposes. Certain agencies, especially those of foreign governments, will also require an additional blue ribbon certification.
If conditions warrant the necessity of a blue ribbon certificate, the National Vessel center will facilitate such attachment. Although a fee is required for the removal letter itself, the blue ribbon certificate is provided at no additional charge.
A blue ribbon certificate as required, may become part of the overall process when a vessel is removed from documentation. Check the WikiTags for more information about a deletion from documentation.
