Vessel Safety Examinations

 

EVEN EXPERIENCED BOATERS NEED A VESSEL SAFETY CHECK!
15 minutes could save your life and the life of your family.


The most cautious boaters can sometimes experience unexpected problems on the water. That's why the U.S. Coast Guard recommends that all recreational boaters, including personal watercraft and paddle sport users, take advantage of the free Vessel Safety Check program every year.

The Vessel Safety Check (VSC) is performed at your boat − whether in a slip, at the launch ramp, or in your driveway − by a certified Vessel Examiner, at a mutually − convenient time, and usually takes 15-30 minutes, depending upon the size of your boat.
