The United States Coast Guard Auxiliary USCGA further invites you (from canoeists & kayakers to year round recreational boaters) to take advantage of one of the two free Vessel Safety Checks coming up this month.
Vessel Safety Checks (VSC) are conducted by qualified members of the U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary and will enable you to learn about any problems that might put you in violation of state or federal laws. Upon successful passing of this exam, the boater will receive a decal for his vessel and may be eligible for an insurance discount.
Join us and find out about our next Safely Boating Course and become acquainted or even reacquainted with basic boating skills, seamanship and the most current rules and regulations that may save a life or prevent an accident.
