Ladies & Gentlemen,
This has been typical of the service that I have been receiving from this Federal office over the years. I have heard a number of stories bad-mouthing them. I just wanted to reveal the other side of the story, as Paul Harvey used to say!
This is consistent with my renewal in 2013. My 2012 change of ownership (the admiral was added) took four months and we had to request hardship at the end as we were cruising outside of the United States and needed an original certificate of documentation.
Ladies & Gentlemen, This is one of the reasons that our "Group Sloop" in the BVI's is corporate owned. It is so much easier to simply retrieve and reissue a share of corporate stock than it is to change USCG Documentation every time there is a change in ownership. Thanks for bringing it up, BP. George
