As many of you know, I took the leap and launched Ocean Yacht Documentation in April of 2014. I started part time and am now focusing my efforts full time. I am very grateful for the support of industry partners, friends and clients that have helped my business grow.
I will continue to implement new ideas to become more efficient and serve as a resource for U.S. Coast Guard documentation needs. One of my goals is to promote this website and blog and become more interactive with my customers! I will also create a testimonials section so that my happy customers may feel free to comment! Cheers to 2015!

We attended the Chesapeake Yacht Racing Association (CPYRA) sailor's party tonight! A great time was had by all despite the fog and rainy weather! Great food, drink and meeting new friends. An awards ceremony was held and special thanks to Penny for playing a big part in revitalizing the association over the past year. See photo below showing Penny receiving her award presented by Tim Ford, CPYRA President. Please refer to link to learn more about CPYRA.
To all boaters - please refer to the U.S. Coast Guard (USCG) restriction guidelines in the attached link. The Upper Chesapeake Bay is closed to marine traffic until April 15, 2015 unless the vessel has a steel hull. http://www.uscg.mil/d5/ICE_REPORT/UpperChesapeakeBay.asp
To all Sailboat and Powerboat owners - It is almost spring! Please make sure that your U.S. Coast Guard Certificate of Documentation is up to date. If it has expired, we are glad to assist in the re documentation process. If you need assistance with the renewal process, we are happy to assist also.
For all you sailboat racers!! As Terry Hutchinson states: "When the team hasn't sailed together in a while, there's an easy way to get everyone on the same page and going fast." See the short article for simple tips on how to plan for a great racing season!
Ocean Yacht Documentation is pleased to share that we are part of the Recreational Boating Leadership Council, New Markets Task Force (formerly called the Diversity Task Force). The group is working together_ to achieve long-term growth in boating by building bridges with demographics not typically associated with the lifestyle, improving awareness of what “diversity” actually means and working together to positively impact the recreation from a career and consumer standpoint.
