Our volunteer Vessel Safety Examiners make it easy to have a Vessel Check.
To become a Vessel Safety Examiner, contact your local club or the D26 Vessel Safety Check committee chairman.
Vessel Safety Checks
Having a reliable boat helps assure you'll have a safe, fun-filled day on the water.
The Vessel Safety Check (VSC) Program is:
A free and voluntary annual inspection service
Offered by America's Boating Club in partnership with the U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary
Our certified examiners check to see if your vessel meets all federal and state regulations that apply to your boat.
If it does, you'll receive a decal to display on your vessel, showing that you achieved a satisfactory inspection.
If it does not, you'll be advised of what needs to be done to meet all requirements.
To request a VSC, contact:
a club near you or the USCG Auxiliary
