Recreational Boating Safety

Our parent organization, the United States Coast Guard, considers recreational boating safety the most important contribution of the Auxiliary.  Consequently this is the largest section of our website. 

Appearing in the frame to the left is a sub-menu of selections.  Clicking on one may produce yet another sub-menu of choices.  Please explore. 

'Boater Education' contains information about classes conducted by this Flotilla and the possibility of findinng any course offered by the Auxiliary by zipcode and radius. 

'Boating Laws' opens a sub-menu of selections covering different jurisdictions

Recreational Boating Safety Visitation (RBS Visitation) is an external link, opening in a new window, linking to a Coast Guard Auxiliary site providing information about an important Auxiliary program whereby member visitors regularly call upon marine retail business providing them with materials concerning Reacreational Boater Safety to become available free to the boating public. 

'Vessel Safety Check' is an external link to an Auxiliary national site allowing you to find a Vessel Examiner (VE) who will perform a free consultation regarding equipment required by federal, state and local requlations and other equipment recommended by the Coast Guard to be carried aboard.

A Vessel Safety Check is not a law enforcement activity.
