A renewal notice you may have received in the mail.
It looks official but this renewal notice is not from the United States Coast Guard National Vessel Documentation Center!!!
Beware of renewal notices you receive in the mail that appear to be from the USCG. They even have a West Virginia return address on the envelope just like the real USCG NVDC. They are timed to arrive just weeks before the official renewal notice that comes from the USCG. The cost to use this renewal service is $75 instead of the normal $26 charged by the USCG.
