VESSEL SAFETY CHECKS
As a courtesy to the boating public, we perform Vessel Safety Checks (VSC)
to help you keep your boat safe. This consists of a review of safety equipment on
your boat or PWC. Our equipment list is usually above and beyond what is required by
most state boating laws. The results of the VSC are told only to you -
there is no penalty for failing - it is a learning experience so you can enjoy your
boating in a safer manner. If your boat passes the VSC, you get a decal to display
on your boat. Many insurance companies offer discounts on boat insurance to
individuals whose boats pass this check.
