Vessels passing safety checks are awarded a U.S. Coast Guard / Auxiliary Decal that informs Coast Guard and other boating law-enforcement and safety agencies that your boat was in full compliance with all Federal and State boating laws during a safety check for that year. Best of all every Vessel Safety Check is 100% free of charge!

So what’s in it for you? Safety! The peace of mind that your boat meets federal safety standards and that in an emergency you will have the necessary equipment to save lives and summon help.
