The 2016 National Safe Boating Week starts this weekend.

During Safe Boating Week, boating-safety partners across the United States and Canada are teaming up to promote safe and responsible boating, including consistent life jacket wear each and every time when on the water.

The Coast Guard Auxiliary will have information available for boaters and paddlecraft owners, as well as information about the auxiliary and its missions, at locations across the Northeast, including launch ramps and marinas. Auxiliary members will also demonstrate a vessel safety check, a multi-point inspection that is available free to all recreational boaters.
