increase your VSC totals.
(Rob has over 20,000 VSCs completed)
GUIDE ON HOW TO DO MORE VSC’S
Local Marina’s - Boat Ramps - Repeat Inspections
Go to or join Clubs in
Fishing Clubs - Sail Clubs - Canoe Clubs - Kayak Clubs Club Races and Contests
Go to the clubs and offer to do inspections before anyone can enter the contest. Explain that insurance comply would love that all who entered had a VSC examination before they could enter the contest. Do the inspection before the boats enter the water and are all lined up on land.
Do inspections on the boats coming out at the end of the year so the owner know what they will need to get in the spring so that a family member can give it to them over the Holidays. This is sure bet you will be called first before the boat goes back in.
Go to the boat ramps early in the morning and in the late in the afternoon to get the most traffic at the ramp. Keep asking to do the inspections even if they have said no in the past.
The more inspections you do the better chance you could save their life or avoid a search and rescue of that vessel.
Remember, every inspection you do could also be a new member to your
squadron or district.
