What is a Vessel Safety Check? (VSC)
A Vessel Safety Check is a courtesy examination of
your boat (Vessel) to verify the presence and condition of certain Safety
Equipment required by State and the Federal regulations. The Vessel
Examiner is a trained specialist and is a member of the United States
Power Squadrons. They will also make certain recommendations and discuss
certain safety issues that will make you a safer boater.
This is not boarding or a law enforcement issue. No
citations will be given as a result of this encounter. We will supply you
with a copy of our evaluation so that you may follow some of the
suggestions given. Vessels that pass will be able to display the
distinctive VSC decal. This does not exempt you from law enforcement
boarding, but you can be prepared to make this a positive encounter. Many
insurance companies offer additional insurance discounts as a result of
passing a Vessel Safety Check.
