Boating safety is at the heart of why America's Boating Club® exists.
In addition to teaching our education classes, our members provide free vessel safety checks, help National Ocean Services keep nautical charts up to date, provide valuable local knowledge and port information through our Port Captains program, and work in partnership with local emergency organizations in rescue operations through our SERAT programs.
Vessel Safety Checks A free yearly Vessel Safety Check (VSC) is an important safeguard to a safe day on the water. There are no consequences if your boat doesn’t pass. Our goal, in partnership with the U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary, is simply to make boating as safe as possible for you, your family and your friends.
