About Vessel Examination
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 a member of the US Coast Guard Auxiliary. In addition to inspections, Vessel Examiners also make certain recommendations and discuss certain safety issues that will make you a safer boater.
The District Vessel Examination department oversees the Auxiliary's vessel examination program at the district level.
