Vessel Inspection [more detail]      

Vessels passing safety checks are awarded a U.S. Coast Guard / Auxiliary Decal that informs:

  • Coast Guard / Auxiliary
  • Harbor Patrol
  • Sheriff's & Police
  • other boating law-enforcement & safety agency's

that your boat was in full compliance with all Federal and State boating laws during a safety check for that year. Best of all every Vessel Safety Check is 100% Free of charge!

Coastie the Safety Boat [more detail]      

Coastie© teaches rules about what to do and not do in a water emergency situation. For instance, Coastie© teaches "Reach or Throw But Never Go In." This message along with interaction and instruction with Coastie© teaches children how to throw or reach something to a person who is in trouble in the water rather than going in to try to save him. He also teaches slogans that kids remember like "Don't Just Pack It! Wear Your Life Jacket!" and "Always Swim With A Buddy In A Supervised Area."
