It may have been removed when it went to Canada, where the rules are similar, but would require giving up the US doc. Then when it came back it would be without the original doc, though records of its original existence may still be aboard, confusing your PO.
A boat I once owned had done the opposite, so I ended up needing to start from scratch to get re-"registered" in Canada.
