USCG Auxiliary Safety Exams

On April 25, KYC and USCG Auxiliary member Vern Craig will be doing safety checks for the yacht club members. Call Vern at 907-821-8439 to make an appointment.

This is a yearly no-fault courtesy examination to help you verify that your boats safety and required equipment is up to date and in good working order and meets federal and state regulations. This is not a “boarding” or law enforcement ordeal, rather it is meant to help protect you should the need for such safety equipment arise while on the water.

Upon passing the exam, a decal is issued to proudly display on your vessel. This does not exempt you from law enforcement boarding, but does signify that you are a safety conscious boater to law enforcement personnel.

For more information, go to the Alaska Coast Guard Auxiliary website at:

(Correction: This is planned for Thursday, April 25th, the same evening as the KYC Trustees meeting, not April 24th as previously reported.)
