VSC Patch   

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 is a member the US Coast Guard Auxiliary. The Vessel Examiner will also make certain recommendations and discuss certain safety issues that will make you a safer boater.

This is not boarding or a law enforcement issue. No citations will be given as a result of this encounter. The Vessel Examiner will supply you with a copy of the evaluation so that you may follow some of the suggestions given. Vessels that pass will be able to display a distinctive VSC decal. This does not exempt you from  law enforcement boarding, but you can be prepared to make this a positive encounter.
