Operation Oshkosh 2019

Date: April 22, 2019

From U.S. Coast Guard Auxillary Neenah/Menasha Flotilla 47-03:

Neenah/Menasha Flotilla 47-03 announces Operation Oshkosh, a FREE Vessel Safety Check blitz at Rainbow Park in Oshkosh on Saturday morning, May 25 from 9:00 AM-noon.

This non law-enforcement check will let the skipper know if they have all the proper equipment on board to meet Federal, State and Local boating regulations. Items that will be checked include:

  • Registration and Numbering
  • Navigational Lighting
  • Life Jackets
  • Ventilation Systems
  • Distress Signals (flares, horn, etc.)
  • Battery cover & connections
  • More…

A Vessel Safety Check (VSC) is performed at Rainbow Park and usually takes 15 to 30 minutes, depending upon the size of your boat – a small investment of time that can actually save a life. Boats and personal watercraft that successfully pass our safety exam will receive their 2019 U.S. Coast Guard VE sticker to display throughout the boating season.

No registration is required – exams are offered on a first-come-first-serve basis. To learn more about Neenah/Menasha Flotilla 47-03, click HERE.
