Will your vessel pass a U. S. Coast Guard Safety Equipment Check? Have a FREE safety check of your boat's required equipment by one of our Vessel Examiners. We will go over your safety equipment with you "one on one" and explain what you are required to have on board. When you pass the safety check, you will receive a "Vessel Safety Check" sticker to be affixed to your vessel to demonstrate your commitment to boating safety.
