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).

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.
