Vessel Safety Check
Even the most cautious boaters can sometimes experience unexpected problems on the water. The courtesy Vessel Safety Check (VSC) is performed at your boat – whether in a slip, at the launch ramp, or in your driveway – by a certified Vessel Examiner, at a mutually-convenient time, and usually takes 30 to 45 minutes, depending upon the size of your boat. This one hour seminar will provide you the details to have your vessel checked by a certified Vessel Examinar.
 
When: Friday, January 15, 6pm – 7pm
           Saturday, January 16, 1pm – 2pm
Where: Room 106
