Request for Deletion
BoatWiki - Forms
Use of this form may have legal and tax implications.
You should consult with an attorney or professional about any such concerns.
The request for deletion from documentation form is designed for removing a vessel from Coast Guard documentation enrollment. It covers the necessary citations to satisfy the National Vessel Documentation Center's requirements for such accommodation. This includes a request for a letter evidencing the removal. The form also facilitates the recording of ancillary forms such as transfer instruments and satisfactions of mortgage.
Vessel owners should file a deletion with the National Vessel Documentation Center immediately when the vessel has been transferred, destroyed, stolen or upon election to remove the vessel from documentation altogether. This is especially important for commercially endorsed vessels if sold to a foreign citizen.
The form is downloadable from the BoatWiki repository by following the above WikiTags link. It is provided in Microsoft Word format with tabbable fields for your convenience. You will need to unprotect the form from the tools menu of your application if you wish to alter the body. The protect option will then need to be reactivated for tabbing functionality.
Complete all fields and checkboxes as applicable. Be sure to include any required payment and provide sufficient contact information. It must be signed by the vessels owner or a duly appointed agent. More detailed usage of this form can be found in the WikiTags guidelines link.
The deletion process is a very important process, although often overlooked. Check out the WikiTag links for more information about deleting a vessel from documentation.
