I am a new VE, I was just asked to do a VSC, on a civilian city government "rescue" boat. Is this boat exempt from any of the usual Coast Guard requirements for a VSC?
As far as the Coast Guard (Auxiliary VE) is concerned:
Should an inflatable "Rescue" boat, approximately 16' with a gas powered outboard, meet the same requirements as any other boat of similar characteristics for a Vessel Safety Check?
Just from a brief glance, the first thing i can see is, even though the boat is new, there are not Any front lights (red/green) at all.
