What is a Vessel Safety Check?


It is a free check of a vessel’s equipment for compliance with federal and state safety requirements. The vessel examiners performing this service have been trained to look for some of the more common problems, which might occur in your boat or its associated safety equipment. Some of the items we check are:

Proper display of numbers
Registration/Documentation
Personal Flotation Devices / Life Jackets
Visual Distress Signals
Fire extinguishers
Ventilation
Backfire flame control
Sound producing devices
Navigation lights
State requirements
Overall vessel condition
If a vessel meets all of the Vessel Safety Check (VSC) requirements it is awarded a VSC decal.
