Vessel safety weeks begin in May

The Coast Guard Auxiliary’s newest national boating safety campaign, Vessel Safety Check Mega Weeks, will run from May 21 through July 10.

Free vessel safety checks will be conducted at boat ramps, marinas, yacht clubs and other locations. The inspections are courtesy examinations to verify the presence and condition of certain safety equipment required by state and federal regulations. No citations are given as a result of vessel safety check. The boat owner is provided a copy of the evaluation with suggestions to follow. Vessels that pass can display the VSC decal.
