A Vessel Safety Check is a courtesy examination of your boat (Vessel) to verify the presence and condition of certain Safety Equipment required by State and the Federal regulations. The Vessel Examiner is a trained specialist and is a member or the US Power Squadrons or the US Coast Guard Auxiliary. They will also make certain recommendations and discuss certain safety issues that will make you a safer boater.
This is not boarding or a law enforcement issue. No citations will be given as a result of this encounter. We will supply you with a copy of our evaluation so that you may follow some of the suggestions given. Vessels that pass will be able to display our distinctive VSC decal. This does not exempt you from law enforcement boarding, but you can be prepared to make this a positive encounter.
This program is comprised of volunteers to serve our recreational boaters in our area. For a free safety inspection leave a message at our telephone number 321-220-7775 or email us at VSC@ABCSB.org. We will make arrangements to have one of our certified Vessel Examiners come to your boat and inspect it, free of charge. If the email should bounce back as undeliverable or an examiner does not respond, please contact our webmaster. Click on the following site for more information.
