The USCG Auxiliary and Ottawa County Sheriff is holding free vessel safety checks:

DATE:  Saturday, May 12th
TIME:  9:30 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.
LOCATION:  Holland DNR boat launch in BIG parking lot (off Ottawa Beach Road).

Pass the inspection, you will be awarded a 2018 decal.

If your boat does not pass, no citation is issued.  Instead, you can correct any discrepancies and request another vessel safety check.  An average vessel check lasts about 30 minutes – depends on the size of your boat.
