Vessel Safety Checks
The mission of the Vessel Safety Check program is to minimize the loss of life, personal injury, property damage and environmental impact while maximizing the safe use and enjoyment of U.S. waterways by recreational boaters. The Vessel Safety Check process is one of “prevention through education, outreach and volunteer compliance” helping recreational boaters to gain a respect for the boating environment.
Our members have joined with the USCG
in offering courtesy Vessel Safety Checks at local marinas. Boat owners
whose boats pass the complementary examination will be awarded a special
decal to display on their boat.
