National Vessel Documentation Center Update

Currently the National Vessel Documentation Center (NVDC) is operating with an approximate 4 month backlog on Recreational Vessel Initial and Reissue/Exchanged Certificate of Documentation. Based on past history, due to the time of year and this being the busy season at the NVDC, we expect the backlog to continue to grow through at least September 2013. With the current backlogs, these folks who have applied for a document will not be able to legally operate their vessels until after the boating season is over and that is not a good thing. .
