Default Odd Certificate of Documentation.

Just for the heck of it I decided to Document my boat and do away with the stare Reg. #’s, so about six weeks ago I sent off all the paperwork.
Two days ago I received back the Certificate of Documentation. It seems a bit odd to me the “year completed” and “place built” are both indicated as “unknown”.
When I applied I even attached a picture of the builder’s plaque which shows the company name, location, boat’s hull number and even the year. It is what it is, but I just thought it a bit odd. Anyone have an idea why they might have done this?
The boat is 62 years old, maybe that has something to do with it?

I believe it is because the boat does not have a modern era HIN

ahh,... Thank you. That would make sense. She is simply hull # 710.

I have a 2004 Cabo 35 flybridge and both the year completed and ship builder are blank. The hull number states the builder. Go figure.

Never bothered to ask as it does not seem worth it to me to figure out why they did not complete all the information even though it was supplied.

^ This. I believe the Coast Guard in conjunction with the NMMA started requiring hull and documention numbers in the mid to late 1960's.

In this boat it's kinda irrelevant, the CG Doc number is now the Official Number.
Permanently affix that to the hull somewhere on the interior.
She is now branded for life.
PS: You still need to state register the boat. Numbers not need be displayed.

For OP - you did not have a Builder's Statement of Origin....

Re HIN's - Originally required in 1972. Current format adopted in 1984.
