Vessel Safety Check

Safety Check

The Coast Guard Auxiliary offers complementary vessel safety checks for boating patrons. These checks are designed to ensure ongoing safety among boaters. When you successfully pass a vessel examination you will receive a decal confirming that your vessel meets minimum state and federal safety requirements.

Flotilla 01-01 will provide free safety inspections for your boat. This will include making sure that your vessel meets both Federal and State requirements. It takes about 20-30 minutes and gives you peace of mind that your boat is properly equipped and in working order before you leave the dock. If the examiner finds a deficiency, he will discuss it with the owner so that it can be corrected and re-examined. No citation or fine will be issued if you do not pass the examination.

An appointment is preferred by calling (619)231-1300 or Maritime VHF channel 10 on any Saturday from 0830-1400 hrs . Those vessels with an appointment will have priority.

If you need an inspection for a time not on the schedule please contact our Vessel Safety Check Officer:
