AVOID BEING STOPPED BY THE COASTGUARD, WITH A 2016 INSPECTION STICKER.
VESSEL SAFETY INSPECTIONS
Vessel Inspections: Saturday Feb 20th 10 am to noon
Inspector: Stuart Wallace
Open to all members. Boats in the yard or in the water.
RSVP by Feb 19 to firstname.lastname@example.org attn: CG vessel inspection appt
A donation of $5 to the coast guard auxiliary is suggested to help them in providing this service to mariners.
The service is free; the CG does not issue any formal notice if you have deficiencies. If you have this certification it is recognized by most enforcement agencies as indicative of compliance with required safety regulations.
In order to plan the day and workload for the inspector, we will require confirmation from anyone wanting an inspection on that date. It is suggested that you do a pre-inspection of your vessel. Go to http://wow.uscgaux.info/content.php?unit=v-dept&category=virtual-safety-check to find a complete list of required items for your vessel.
Please don’t sign up unless you plan on having your boat available for inspection!
