Fellow boaters, I have just received my 2010 Vessel Safety check stickers from the Coast Guard. Nice orange color this year. I realize it maybe early for a lot of us but there are a few that are planning on hitting the shrimp opener. If you want a Vessel Safety check for your boat please PM with a phone number, date and time that would work best for you and I will do my best to accommodate. Please keep in mind that if you don’t pass there is no penalty. I will just give you a list of items needed to pass and come back once they are acquired. The most common failure items last year were no covers over the battery terminals. Safe boating.
