The commercial fishing industry is regulated by the United States Coast Guard and staying compliant with your vessel documentation is an important part of being a responsible fishing business owner. It’s not always easy to complete paperwork and sometimes the process can feel time-consuming and overwhelming. That’s why we’re here. Our services can help make documentation faster and more efficient. Here’s what you need to know.
What is USCG Documentation?
Most commercial fishing vessels are required to be registered and documented with the US Coast Guard. This includes the paperwork that goes with your boat but also ensures safety compliance and regulation adherence. Our services help you understand the documents and when they are necessary, as well as which ones you need to file. This helps you focus your time and energy on getting the paperwork you need, without wasting time on what you don’t. This varies from boat to boat, so let us help take some of the confusion out of it for you.
Central Application Portal
In today’s digital world, you no longer have to fill out your USCG paperwork by hand and mail it. Now you can input the data into the form online, cutting down on the time it takes, as well as making it faster and easier to correct mistakes before you submit. You can also pay your fees on this portal, making it even more convenient to register and renew your documentation.
Efficient Application Process
Your time as a fisherman is valuable and chances are you don’t have a lot leftover for mundane tasks like spending hours on paperwork. Fortunately, our documentation services dramatically reduce the time and effort it takes to file, giving you back time and energy for other tasks, whether they’re on the water or elsewhere. This frees up time for more fishing or spending time off your boat with family and friends, creating a healthy work-life balance that we all strive for.
Our online portal also makes it simple to check the status of your paperwork. You can check in to see where it is in the approval process so you can plan accordingly with other aspects of your fishing business. If updates are needed, you get a handy alert so that you can take care of it in a timely manner. This means a streamlined process that ensures up-to-date and accurate documentation all the time.
