    FREE Boat Safety Check

    The Michigan Sheriff's Association (MSA) and the Michigan Department of Natural Resources (DNR) sponsor a Vessel Safety Check (VSC) Program. The Program is being offered by the Clare County Sheriff's Department free of charge to our Lake residents.

    It is not a "get-out-of jail" type program. It should provide some degree of assurance for the vessel operator that they would not be stopped by the DNR or Sheriff Marine Deputy for a simple "safety check.” All vessels upon Michigan waters are subject to being stopped by law enforcement for probable cause. After completing the inspection the vessel owner will be given a 2017 decal which is to be displayed on the driver's side windshield.

    If interested in this safety check, there’s a sign-up sheet at Bev’s Store, along with contact information if you have questions for Len Pilz, Marine Safety Watch Chairperson. The program runs throughout the summer until Labor Day weekend.
