Vessel Safety Check (VSC)

2014 Vessel Safety Check Decal

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 Federal regulations.  The Vessel Examiner is a trained specialist and is a member of the United States Power Squadrons or the U. S. Coast Guard Auxiliary.  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 our distinctive VSC decal.  This does not exempt you from law enforcement boarding, but you can be prepared to make this a positive encounter.
