USCG Builder Plate?
« on: September 10, 2020, 04:54:20 pm »
I am importing our 1979 CSY 44 WO from Canada back to the US and need to formally import the vessel. They need proof of US build. The CPB officer said that the boat should have a builders plate mounted on the boat. If I have one, I don't have to jump through a bunch of hoops trying to get  replacement construction cert.  I have not seen one on the boat. Anyone ever see one on theirs?

Perhaps the officer is referring to the TXY....... numbers that are molded into the hull at the upper starboard side of the transom? 
Those same numbers should be on your registration/documentation papers also, and they will identify the manufacturer and State of origin.
