At your request, we can perform a Free Boat Safety Equipment Examination. This is an audit of safety equipment on your boat. Only you are told of the results. Our equipment list is usually above and beyond what is required by most state boating laws. If your boat passes the exam, you get a decal you can put on your boat. Our examiners will advise you about important safety equipment which will allow you to boat with confidence.

Call Vessel Examiner: Skip Banner: C: 757-871-9591 or W: 757-953-9633, E-mail: to schedule your free boat safety check. Be sure to include your name, phone number, and the best time to contact you in your e-mail message.
