Have you ever needed to cross check some information about your boat? Is this information probably stored in the Transport Canada database? Here’s how to request a boat report history.

Boat Report History

What happens to all the information that’s submitted to Transport Canada in regards to any given particular vessel? Well, it evidently gets stored in their database for both present and future reference. However, just because it’s stored with them, it doesn’t mean that they’re the only ones who get to access it. In fact, boat owners can easily access it too, by way of Transport Canada’s boat documentation transcripts. What information do these have? How can you access it? Let’s take a quick look.

What Information Will You Find in a History Report?

When Transport Canada processes a comprehensive boat report history for you, you will find that there is a lot of information enclosed. After all, these boat history transcripts are meant to include all the information that’s been registered with Transport Canada under the given hull number ID. These ID numbers attached to the vessel never change, regardless of potential ownership changes. This means that even if the boat has been registered under other owners before, the information from these ownerships are still going to be included in the transcript that you receive upon request. In short, these compilations of information can actually be quite useful if you need to cross check any sort of information attached to the boat, regardless of what it is or when it’s from.
