Re: 3 Registries for the Yamato?

The TNG Tech Manual mentions the time to build a Galaxy class vessel to be rather lengthy. Fabrication began in 2348; Enterprise launched in 2358 and commissioned in 2363. Although I would expect that build times may have gotten shorter for later vessels in that class, the initial long fabrications make me hesitant to accept that 1305-E and 71087 were different vessels. Later on in the series, that could be argued to be the case - the newer Yamato might have been one of the "spare" spaceframes mentioned in the TM.
