Vessel Safety Check
A Vessel Safety Check (VSC) is a free service of the United States Power Squadrons® and the United States Coast Guard Auxiliary®. We conduct VSCs for any personal pleasure craft – paddle, power, or sail. There is no charge, and no consequences if you don’t pass. Our goal is simply to help make boating as safe as possible for you, your family, and your friends, through education.
The US Coast Guard has established minimum requirements for boat condition and equipment. A Vessel Safety Check will review those with you. If there are areas that need improvement or equipment to be added, you will learn how to bring your boat into compliance.
To get started, please fill out your contact information and description of your boat below. Note that we typically can perform the VSC wherever your boat is located at a time of mutual convenience. Or by arrangement you may bring your boat to our examiner.
We look forward to meeting you!
