Default What's the big deal???

I just got my Coast Guard Documentation back today.I sent them in on April 26th,yes,twelve days ago!!!Every thread on CG Doc. has made me feel like it would turn into a motion picture to get this paperwork.IT WAS EASY!!! I read replies from others stating to pay the money to someone who does it for you and it could take up to 6 months...not true.

Here's the number to avoid the automated system,304-271-2400.I forget what number you have to push but you get directly connected to someone...tell them what you're trying to do...they will fax you the papers you need or send them to you...fill out and send them in.The bill of sale has to be notarized(any local bank)and don't forget the $$$(it was a hundred even ).Any questions let me know.I'd be glad to help and won't charge the "documentation expert" fee
Oh yeah,tell me more about registering in Delaware...I havent in NY yet...still trying to screw them for a few bucks

For me, I don't have to pay "unsecured property tax" to the state of California every year!--I think it's like 1% of the value
