Free boat safety checks in Riverview!

Ruskin, Florida -- Learn how to keep you and your family safe when you're out on the water this summer. If you have plans to take the boat out get it checked out first.

Sgt. Brad Millican of the Pinellas County Sheriff's Office Marine Unit says, for many people, this is the first time all year they've taken their boat out.

The U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary Flotilla 75 gives free vessel safety inspections for recreational boaters. The safety checks only take about 15 minutes.

They are held at the Williams Park Boat Ramp at 9425 U.S. 41 in Riverview on the Alafia River on the first and third Saturday of each month. Click here to see a list of what inspectors will be looking for.

No appointment is necessary and you can also schedule an appointment to have someone inspect your boat at a different time. You will be able to ask questions, learn new safety tips, and receive a Vessel Safety Check decal.
