This is the first time that you have owned your own vessel, and you need to make sure that it is probably documented and registered. All of the paperwork required to submit an application can be very daunting to the beginner, and if you are uncertain about the status of your vessel, then you may not even be certain whether you need to complete Form 1- application for registry before you sail your vessel. You need to make sure that you understand what registration entails before you submit your forms.
Benefits of Registration
Applying to receive registration of your vessel will be costly, as each application you submit costs $250. However, if you intend to use the boat in international waters, or will be sailing for other purposes, then registration act as a proof of ownership, and can be one way to overcome problems with customs and other agencies. When you submit a registration application, you can also apply for a provisional certificate which will allow you to sail before the full registration is complete. Understanding all of these implications can help you to decide whether you need to register.
