Warmer weather is here! Is your boat ready for the season?
The Virtual Vessel Examiner is a free online tool that walks you through a full self-inspection of your recreational boat.
From proper display of your registration number to how many Visual Distress Signals you need on board, this interactive checklist keeps you compliant with the minimum federal requirements for safely operating your boat. Before a ‘Vessel Safety Check’ decal can be awarded, your boat must also meet any state or local maritime law requirements.
Be sure your boat is ready and enjoy a safe season on the water! Read more at the U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary’s website.
