2016 Vessel Safety Check Sticker Awarded for Passing Inspection
As one of our boating safety missions, we conduct complimentary Vessel Safety Checks of recreational watercraft (boats, personal watercraft, etc.).
An example of some of the items examined during a Vessel Safety Check:
|Life Jackets||Registration and numbering|
|Fire extinguishers||Distress signals (flares, horn, etc.)|
|Battery cover and connections||Backfire Flame Control|
All of these items, and more, are currently required by state and federal laws and, if missing or non-operating, can result in a citation if your vessel is inspected by local, regional or national law enforcement personnel.
We do not issue citations nor do we report the results of the safety check to any enforcement agency, but we will advise you of the recommended safety features for your size boat and will award a decal to display on your boat if it has passed the safety check.
The Vessel Safety Check gives you a risk-free way to meet the legal minimums and to potentially avoid a costly citation.
You may arrange for a Vessel Safety Check by:
Catching a member of the Auxiliary at the Marina or
