More info: Here is an opportunity to get a courtesy examination of your vessel (life jackets, navigation lights, fire extinguishers, distress signals, registration and numbering, etc) by a qualified examiner to verify the presence and condition of your safety equipment required by State and Federal regulations. There are NO fines, penalties or reports to ANY agency. If your vessel is properly equipped, you will receive the 2019 VSC decal. Vessel Safety Checks are a joint program between the Coast Guard Auxiliary and the US Power Squadrons. Some insurance companies will give you a discount on your insurance for passing one. If a problem is found during the check, the only person to whom it is reported is you, the boat owner.
