    Congratulations. I take it somebody actually admitted that California did not bought the vessel overseas or second hand?
    What are the plans for this fine ship?

    That one reasonable guy had probably spent the last two years making sure the Queen Mary was legit. Congratulations.

    Congratulations. I knew there had to be someone at NVDC that still has a brain.

    SolomonGrundy I'm not crazy...

    ...all it really took was a FOIA request with the State of California and all the photographic evidence they were holding back,

    kind of hard to argue with pics showing the boat under construction being loaded on to a trailer towed by a truck with CA license plates and a sign that reads "SAN DIEGO BOAT MOVERS" on it.
    ...even that alone wasn't enough, I had to overwhelm them with circumstantial evidence AND let them know I wouldn't be going away if they refused me again.
    Getting her fitted out for charter fishing and whale watching for now...might get into vessel assist and light salvage down the road.

    Glad your persistence paid off. Frankly I am ashamed for the USCG that it took so long.
