Below are 5 guidelines to follow to help keep your boat storm-damage free. 1.

Find out what equipment and tools you will need to move your boat. Make sure to operate a “test-run” of your plan prior to storm season or winter. 2. Double Check your Agreements If you have a lease or storage rental agreement, check with the marina or storage area to make sure everything is correct.

Have You Had Your Free Vessel Safety Check This Year? Have you had your free Vessel Safety Check?  Vessel Safety Checks are generally performed on recreational boats under 65 feet. Vessel Safety Check requirements parallel federal and individual state regulations regarding equipment and safety conditions of the vessel. A VSC is not a law enforcement action. No official report is made to any law enforcement authority. A Vessel Safety Check is performed only with the consent of the owner or operator, who must be present at the time of the examination. A Vessel Safety Check does not circumvent the right of any federal, state or local law enforcement officer to verify the presence and condition of safety equipment. A Vessel Safety Check (VSC) is performed at your boat − ranging in locations from boat to your driveway. A vessel safety check usually takes 15 to 30 minutes, depending upon the size of your boat. What’s In it For Me? Vessels passing safety checks are awarded a U.S. Coast Guard / Auxiliary Decal that informs: Coast Guard / Auxiliary Harbor Patrol Sheriff’s & Police Other boating law-enforcement & safety agency’s that your boat was in full compliance with all Federal and State boating laws during a safety check for that year.  Best of all every Vessel Safety Check is 100% Free of charge! What if I Don’t Pass? If your boat does not pass, no citation is issued at that time. Instead, you are provided a written report in how to correct any discrepancies. Vessel Safety Check Why Receive a Vessel Safety Check? Safety!  The peace of mind that your...
