Courtesy Vessel Safety Check
The U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary and U.S. Power Squadrons will perform a Vessel Safety Check (VSC) of your vessel and equipment free of charge. This courtesy check covers federal and state requirements and is not a law enforcement contact.
Courtesy checks are conducted routinely at boat launch and public access sites early in the boating season.
If your vessel meets all VSC requirements, you will receive a VSC decal. If your vessel fails to meet all requirements, no report is made to any law enforcement agency.
To request a Vessel Safety Check by an examiner, visit http://SafetySeal.net/GetVSC/ and enter your zip code.
