BoatWiki - Forms
An affidavit of name correction is used to correct typos and minor errors in an applicants name when applying for vessel documentation. This applies to instruments such as bills of sale, deeds of gift and similar items. This includes ownership assignments on a certificate of documentation. The affidavit can not be used to correct the transferor's name as this would require re-issuance of the underlying instrument.
The form is provided in Microsoft Word in order to facilitate any changes to its structure or textual content. It is also fielded and tabbable for your convenience. In making any non-fielded alterations, it will be necessary to select the "Unprotect" option from the "Tools" menu of your application. It can thereafter be protected again as a form to regain the fielding.
The form must be completed in its entirety in the places indicated. Be sure to fully describe the subject instrument, including it's date. It must be signed and duly sworn before a notary public by the person whose name is being corrected.
Affidavits of this nature are evaluated on an individual basis by the documentation center and approval is not guaranteed.
