Newby here, poring over the CFR’s and I can find nothing requiring an annual inspection for T-Boats that operate only domestically.
What I find is the opposite - i.e. only 5-year inspections required unless operating internationally
The boat had historically had annual inspections but missed due to owner’s poor health and management changes. I am hearing horror stories that we will have to start from scratch on COI due to missing annual and possibly face big fines.
