Coast Guard dockside exams
January 31, 2019
Coast Guard personnel will be in Petersburg February 4-8 to conduct dockside safety exams on commercial fishing vessels. Sign up at the harbormaster’s office for an exam. These exams are free, take about an hour and help ensure vessels are being operated safely and legally. Vessels passing their exam will be issued a decal that is good for two years. Prior to the exam, vessel owners can visit http://www.fishsafewest.info, where they can create a customized checklist of federal requirements for their vessel. Contact Steve Ramp at 738-7267, with questions.
