A major component of a fun filled outing is a reliable boat which has all the necessary equipment operating properly. A free vessel safety check (VSC) is an important safe-guard, and our certified examiners will be happy to perform the check for you. There are no consequences if you don't pass. Our goal is simply to help make boating as safe as possible for you, your family and your friends, through education.
The United States Power Squadrons and the U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary are partners in this valuable program offered to the boating public. All examiners are certified and trained on the latest requirements. The Vessel Safety Check is similar to the review that is performed by the U.S. Coast Guard if you are boarded, except that it is voluntary, and only you receive the results.
During the Vessel Safety Check, in addition to helping verify various federal, state, and local regulations, the vessel examiner will have an opportunity to discuss with a fellow boater the purpose of having the correct marine safety equipment, and to be able to discuss local boating conditions and answer safety related questions.
This a one-on-one education!
