Vessel Examiner qualified members of Division 9 are pleased to inspect your boat at no charge.  If your boat meets the requirements you will receive a sticker that indicates your boat has passed the US Coast Guard Auxiliary inspection. If for some reason your boat does not pass the inspection, we will simply let you know what needs to be done. Their are no charges, no fines, and we do not report to local authorities.  Our goal is keeping you safe.
