Free safety checks for boat owners

CPS-CourtesyCheck_300x250Prince Edward Power and Sail Squadron is offering free, anonymous Recreation Vessel Courtesy Checks (RVCC) this summer at boat ramps and marinas.

The RVCC takes about 30 minutes and could save you money, or even your life,” said Dale Holland the program’s volunteer co-ordinator with the squadron. “A Boating Safety Specialist is a trained CPS-ECP member who will review the list of required equipment, make certain recommendations and discuss safety issues to help individuals become safer boaters. They cannot issue any fines.”

A successful RVCC will give boaters a decal they can affix in a visible place, showing marine authorities they have been found in compliance with safety requirements.

“If you don’t have the right equipment, you’ll get a list of what you need,” said Holland. “Once you’re out on the water, fines for not having the right equipment in good working order start at $200. No fines are issued by CPS-ECP volunteers – we only give advice.”

CPS-ECP offers this program as part of the Boating Safety Contribution Program from Transport Canada.
