Vessel Safety Checks

A Vessel Safety Check is a courtesy examination of your boat to verify the presence and condition of certain safety equipment required by State and Federal regulations. The Vessel Examiner is a trained specialist and is a member of the United States Power Squadrons or the US Coast Guard Auxiliary. They will also make certain recommendations and discuss safety issues that will make you a safer boater.

This is not a boarding or a law enforcement issue. All Vessel Safety Checks are voluntary. No citations will be given as a result of the encounter. We will supply you with a copy of our evaluation so that you may follow some of the sugestions 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.

For more details or to request a Vessel Safety Check,
please contact P/C Bob Moss, N. at bjmoss68 @ or 440-988-2514
