Some good news in our quarantine, our U.S. Coast Guard National Vessel Documentation Center (NVDC) documentation was finally processed, approved, and arrived in our mailbox!
We submitted the initial documentation in July of 2019, knowing that it can take quite a while to submit, re-submit, and correct whatever inevitable tiny mistakes were made. Charles’ first boat, Duende, did not process through NVDC until about a month before he sold it – about 23 months after he first applied.
So, we are now, officially and legally, aboard Ayala. This is one more important step towards cruising!
