The Vessel Safety Check (VSC) is a FREE service provided to owners or operators of privately-owned recreational boats. It is a USCG Auxiliary service for the public and is NOT required by any government agency.

We help you be sure you have all the legally required equipment as well as some extra equipment for safety.

If you would like to arrange for a Safety Check on your boat at another time, or if you want more information about the Vessel Examination process contact the Flotilla Staff Officer of Vessel Examinations, Perry Taylor at:

Other local Flotillas hold VSC stations as well. You can even have an Auxiliarist come to you for a VSC.

NOTE: The Coast Guard Auxiliary is the volunteer, civilian branch of the Coast Guard. We do NOT have Law Enforcement authority. We want you and your boat to be safe! If there is a legal infraction on your boat, you will NOT get a ticket! We want to be invited back, to keep helping you keep your boat safe.

New Federal Law: all children under the age of 13 are now required to wear a PFD (Life Jacket) while on board a recreational vessel that is underway. The only exceptions are if the child is below decks or in an enclosed cabin, or on a vessel that is not underway.
