Duplicate Certificate of Documentation Request
BoatWiki - Forms
The request for duplicate certificate of documentation (COD) form is designated for owners that did not receive their certificate after a reasonable period from which it was issued. This applies to both application and renewal filings. It is not designed for received documents that have been lost or mutilated as this requires a CG1258 application form with fees.
The request form must be received by the National Vessel Documentation Center (NVDC) within 90 days after the certificate was issued. Such date can be determined by searching the PSIX database using the official number or hull number. The owner should, however, wait at least four weeks after the issuance date before requesting a duplicate in order to allow for delivery. If it goes beyond this time period it will be necessary to file a CG1258 application form with fees.
This form is available from the BoatWiki repository in Microsoft Word format. It may be altered as necessary to match your particular circumstances.
Provide all information as indicated. Be sure to include a current address if that of the the original submission is invalid. The request must be signed by one of the owners and can not be executed by an agent or vessel documentation service.
Timing is of the essence in requesting the duplicate COD. If the request is received after the 90 day period, it will be necessary to file a application for replacement (CG-1258) along with the respective fee.
