- A boating course approved by the National Association of State Boating Law Administrators (NASBLA) or …

Our USCG ABC course meets the requirements of NASBLA and we have the Division of Watercraft cover the state requirements at our class, so that when you pass the requirements you will get the OHIO certificate.
Arrangements can be made for classes at other locations when there are sufficient number of people interested. We have held them at Companies, Boat Distributors, Marine Supply Companies, and Yacht Clubs.

Vessel Safety Checks
Flotilla 06 conducts Vessel Safety Checks, VSC, at numerous marina around the Toledo Area during he boating season. We can also arrange to have the vessels in your Yacht Club completed. Numerous Yacht clubs require a VSC to be completed for every vessel launched from their facilities yearly for insurance purposes.
VSC’s can also be arranged by calling us at 419-849-3491 or emailing the webmaster.
The best part of knowing your vessel meets the USCG Federal Requirements and the State of Ohio requirements is that it is FREE. Vessels that meet the requirements are given a Decal that is placed on the left front side of your vessel to let all know that you care enough.
