Welcome to the Flotilla 4-8, District 9ER Web Site

Welcome Aboard Flotilla 48 in Hamlin, NY

Flotilla 48 Base 


We are Flotilla 48, located just east of Hamlin Beach State Park on beautiful Lake Ontario. 
The flotilla was established in 1978.  We are all volunteers with the purpose of supporting the Coast Guard through promoting and improving recreational boating safety.  

Flotilla 48 has 24 active members. We are involved in many activities, including:

Free Vessel Safety Checks - Contact us and we will come to your home or marina to check your boat for compliance with federal and state requirements.  Your reward will be a Vessel Safety Decal and knowledge that you have the required equipment.

Boating Classes - Check out the different boating classes that we offer.  Contact us for the class of your choice.

Visiting Marinas and Marine Dealers - We supply boating safety information to marinas and dealers for all types of boats, including paddle craft.  State and Federal brochures along with pamphlets on life jackets and  visual distress signals are just a few of the free information we supply.

Dockside Advisors - If you see us on the dock, feel free to stop us and ask questions.  We are more than happy to share our knowledge with you.  

Public Events - You will see our members at the Rochester Boat Show.  We also participate in the Fireman's Parades in Spencerport, Hamlin, Kendall, and Hilton.  You may even get a glimpse of PDF Panda.  Remember - Don't just pack it , Wear Your Jacket!

Radio Communications - The Flotilla 48 base has a radio tower.  We staff volunteers to aid in communication with Station Rochester.
