What is a Vessel Safety Check?
It is a free check of a vessel's equipment for compliance with federal, state and local safety requirements. Some of the items checked are:
Proper display of numbers
Backfire flame control
Sound producing devices
State & local requirements
Overall vessel condition
Personal flotation devices
Visual distress signals
During the Vessel Safety Check the examiner has an opportunity to discuss with a fellow boater the purpose of the marine safety equipment, to clarify various federal, state, and local regulations, to review local boating conditions, to answer any boating-related safety questions and to encourage additional boater education.
Do take this opportunity to have a safe boating season. Sign in at Torresen Marine Ships Store for this inspection. If you have any questions regarding this program you may contact:
