Vessel Safety Check

The Vessel Safety Check is a FREE bow-to-stern inspection of your boat by a qualified member of the Vero Beach Power Squadrons®. It’s your best way to learn about potential problems that might put you in violation of state or federal laws, or — worse — create danger for you or your passengers on the water.Things can go wrong on the water, with dangerous — even fatal — results. That’s why the U.S. Coast Guard recommends that you get a Vessel Safety Check (VSC) every year.

Your Only Risk is Not Having One 

Vessel Examiners issue no citations. There are no penalties for not successfully completing a Vessel Safety Check.

Vessel Examiners provide you with a copy of the vessel safety check form, allowing you to make the recommended safety improvements at your own discretion.

And while the VSC decal won’t necessarily preclude boarding's by law enforcement authorities, it can give you confidence that such encounters are as positive as possible.

Need another reason? A large number of major insurance providers offer discounts for boats that successfully pass a Vessel Safety Check!

How It Works
A Vessel Examiner will meet you at your boat at a prearranged time or during a VSC event at a marina, boat ramp, etc. The Examiner will check the presence and condition of approximately fifteen items required by state and federal regulations. Additionally, they will discuss items that are recommended but not required... and answer your questions on boating safety.

A typical Vessel Safety Check takes approximately twenty minutes. At the conclusion of the check, you’ll receive a copy of the Vessel Safety Check form and — if your vessel successfully meets all the requirements — a VSC decal will be presented on the spot.

What Does a Vessel Safety Check Cover?
Vessel Safety Checks are customized for various size powerboats, personal watercraft (PWCs), sailboats, and even kayaks, canoes, or rowboats. Use this “quick list” to see if you are ready for your free VSC. This list includes items that are required, along with recommended and discussion items.
