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
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.
