    Check this site out: http://cgaux.org/vsc/

    It has the information that you are looking for as well as a way to find an auxiliary vessel examiner near you.

    Hi there l911

    For-sure check out hte link Amorhetleven posted. I'm not a VE but I did notice you didn't say anything about a radio on your list above. The only time I go out without a radio is if I'm paddling my kayak or rowing my little 'jon' boat and even then, I usually have my cell phone and usually my hand-held VHF. A bucket to bail water with is a good idea too.

    On larger boats I think Flares are a good idea too, so long as you know how to use them safely. I wish I knew where to get some MK-79's for my sailboat without spending a fortune.

    I am a VE and I would suggest that you contact someone in your area using the link that I provided. Since I do not know which state you are in (and each state has different requirements), I do not want to give you wrong information.

    Just a note that if you have flares on board your vessel, check the expiration date. That is the most common reason that people fail (for me) when I am conducting my vessel exams.

    It would be best to go to a store specializing in marine products such as West Marine. You should talk to someone to figure out what will suit your needs best.
