The Juneau area Coast Guard Auxiliary is offering free year round recreational vessel inspection house calls. Inspectors will drive to your home and check your vessel's safety equipment, ensuring that it is up to date and meets Coast Guard safety standards. After the inspection, boaters will receive an updated inspection sticker that tells Coast Guard boarding teams and law enforcement agencies that the vessel has passed an inspection this year. This could save valuable time, as opposed to being boarded during a fishing trip. Those interested in a vessel inspection, dockside or at home, are requested to contact Mike Folkerts at 463-2297.
