Default CG Documentation Service or do it yourself?

I plan to document the Cig I just bought, I'm wondering If I should pay a service to do so or just deal with all the paperwork myself? Who has done this before and what was your experience? Whoh did you use, how much? Or how easyy was it to do it yourself?

What are the average costs of having a service document the boat for you?

It's about $400 around here.
But you can still do it yourself for a little over $100 using the USCG website.
Your choice.

There is nothing to do it yourself. However, would you like to go boating today? Sharon will supply the necessary official temporary papers. If you get stopped you won't get popped.

Good point.
But if you've got the time:

Do it yourself: www.uscg.mil/hq/g-m/vdoc/nvdc.htm

It will take more than a week usually 3-4. There are no official temporary documents. You can yourself, just as services do, request expedited service. I did this and got it back nine days after I faxed a letter requesting expedited service..
