Vessel Safety Checks 

As the season ends we encourage all boaters to plan on having a Vessel Safety Check in the spring of 2018 to assure you are ready to operate safely during the season.  The safety Checks are a free service offered by our Flotilla at various venues around Lake Hopatcong.  As we approach the 2018 season, see the "Vessel Safety Checks" page for additional details and to arrange an inspection.
