Maryland Natural Resources Police are pushing hard this boating season to make it safer than 2015, when there were 147 boating accidents with 21 deaths, eighteen of them not wearing life jackets, 125 injuries, 25 lost vessels and about $1 million in damage. Help make our Maryland waters safer! Certified Vessel Examiners of the Patuxent River Sail and Power Squadron are ready to provide you a free Vessel Safety Check  (VSC) recommended by the Coast Guard for all recreational boaters, including personal watercraft and paddle sports. This courtesy VSC is performed at your boat – whether in a slip, at the launch ramp, or in your driveway, at a mutually-convenient time, and usually takes 30 to 45 minutes, depending upon the size of your boat. Items that are checked include fire extinguishers, distress signals, navigation lights, and life jackets. There is no negative consequence if your boat doesn’t pass!  To request your free VSC call 301-481-2547.  Remember, no vessel is too large or too small to be safe – and in compliance. The safety of your family, friends, and fellow boaters depends on you!
