Hi, I have both a state title and USCG certificate of documentation. This is only because I registered the vessel with the state first, but if I documented first, I would not have a state title.
Let’s say I foolishly sign over my state title to one person while at the same time I sign over my USCG CoD to another person. Who has legal rights to take the vessel. I’m guessing the one with federal documentation, but I’m also thinking that the one who pays the state registration and taxes first may have an edge, at least with local authorities, at getting possession (which as the saying goes is 9/10 of the law). - Paul E. 1981 C&C 38 Landfall S/V Johanna Rose Fort Walton Beach, FL http://svjohannarose.blogspot.com/
