Flotilla 24 members who stood watches at the Alki Point Light House this year were recognized at a recent Flotilla meeting. This stalwart group put in 317 hours "on station" - that doesn't include time spent driving to and from the light house (and finding a parking place). Left to right, Gordon Myers, Kelli Rader, Margaret Singbeil, John Theiler, Efrem Krisher, Garrison Bromwell, Charlene Whitworth-Babcock, Debra Alderman (project lead for Division 2) and Moti Krauthamer.

PUBLIC AFFAIRS EVENTS
Division 2 consistently wins the District Public Affairs ribbon for Public Affairs. We have three mega-projects (The Boat Show, Alki Point Light House, and Christmas Stocking Stuffers) that allow us to "stuff the ballot box". But we also do a lot of other Public Affairs and there are many opportunities on the horizon to meet the public and get our Recreational Boating Safety message out there. To check them out and to sign up if you want to assist, please click on the Public Affairs sign up genius on this non-Auxiliary web site. (Also check the What's Happening Page of this web site for those events on the near horizon - less than three months out).

Boating Education Classes
Interested in taking a boating education class? Want to meet the requirements of the Washington Boater Education law (required by everyone 59 or younger in 2014), or find out more about boating safety or boating education in general?
Use our handy class finder!
Members--use the class finder if you are interested in helping teach, if you need a class to become Basically Qualified (BQ) or to meet the basic boating education requirements of the Boat Crew Program.
Vessel Safety Checks
Get a free Vessel Safety Check - a qualified Auxiliarst will check your boat for compliance with the applicable federal and state requirements in this free program. This isn't a law enforcement action - the examiner can't report any problems to law enforcement. Be safe, get a Vessel Safety Check and display the sticker proudly!
If you are in the Seattle area, fill out this form to request an appointment to have a local examiner contact you. If you are out of the Seattle area, use the national Vessel Examiner locator to find an examiner near you.
