Vessel Safety Checks

Do you have all the gear that you're required to have on your boat? Do you know what gear is not required but will save your life? Obtain a vessel safety check and we will educate you about the gear you need and the gear that would be great to have. Here's a list of things we will be looking for on your vessel :

  • numbering and documentation
  • navigation lights
  • sound producing devices
  • life jackets
  • visual distress signals
  • backfire flame arrester
  • fuel systems
  • anchor and anchor line
  • alternate propulsion
  • dewatering devices
  • general condition
  • state requirements
