VESSEL SAFETY CHECKS

As one of our boating safety missions, we conduct complimentary Vessel Safety Checks of recreational watercraft (boats, personal watercraft, etc.).

An example of some of the items examined during a Vessel Safety Check:

  • Personal Flotation Devices (life jackets)
  • Navigation lights
  • Fire extinguishers
  • Battery cover and connections
  • Registration and numbering
  • Ventilation
  • Distress signals (flares, horn, etc.)

All of these items, and more, are currently required by state and federal laws and, if missing or non-operating, can result in a citation if your vessel is inspected by local, regional or national law enforcement personnel.

We do not issue citations nor do we report the results of the safety check to any enforcement agency, but we will advise you of the recommended safety features for your size boat and will award a decal to display on your boat if it has passed the safety check.

The Vessel Safety Check gives you a risk-free way to meet the legal minimums and to potentially avoid a costly citation.
