Boat safety checks will be performed Saturday

Vessel inspections are free

Free boat safety checks will be provided on Saturday, Feb. 28, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., at the Clark County Operations Center, 4700 N.E. 78th St., Vancouver.

Trained specialists from the US Coast Guard Auxiliary will check to see if all required items are on-board. If everything is present and in good working order, the boat owner will be awarded a decal that can be affixed to the vessel.

Examiners have no legal authority. Their goal is to prevent boaters from getting equipment related citations and to reduce safety related accidents.
