No citations are issued and the results of the safety check are not reported to any enforcement agency, but a decal is awarded to display if the vessel has passed the examination.
|POINT PLEASANT, NJ--USCGA 16-07 Public Affairs Staff Officer Dave Witherspoon shows off the Vessel Safety Check decal awarded to those who pass the Vessel Inspection in June 2017.|
An example of some of the items checked include:
- Life Jackets
- Registration and numbering
- Navigation lights
- Fire extinguishers
- Distress signals (flares, horn, etc.)
- Battery cover and connections
The Vessel Safety Check gives you a risk-free way to check that you meet the legal minimums and to potentially avoid a citation later.
