Default USCG Documented vessel Look up

I believe it's been mentioned in the past but had no look in search. Does anyone know how to look up an owners contact information by their USCG Vessel Documentation number?

TIA!

you can run an abstract of title

or if the boat was documented with the same owner before the public db change was made, some websites took copies and you can search them

The CG shouldn’t hide that info, it should be public record. Airplanes, cars... those registered owners are readily available.

Why should it be public? And where is car owner information readily available?

IMO if they make it public they should make everyone CG document their boats.

I think that info should only be accessible by the registered owner so they can see previous owners of their vessel. We have a right to piracy, arrr, I mean privacy matey.
