  2. RADIO COMMUNICATIONS: Members provide VHF and HF radio communications supporting Coast Guard and Auxiliary national and local radio nets.
  3. FOOD SERVICES: Qualified members may deploy on active duty CG ships to provide food services for the ship's crew.
  4. FREE VESSEL SAFETY EXAMS: We provide free vessel safety inspections helping boaters to meet all safety elements required by State and Federal law.
  5. PUBLIC EDUCATION: Qualified member instructors conduct Boating Safety Classes for area boaters encompassing general boating safety, First Mate training, trailering, marlinspike, GPS navigation, Tennessee River Familiarization and more. Contact Mike Colacone at [email protected]  Click here to check for classes.
  6. SAFETY LITERATURE DISTRIBUTION: We regularly visit 35+ public locations throughout the area distributing boating laws and safety publications.

FREE VESSEL SAFETY CHECKS by USCG Auxiliary Certified Vessel Examiners to insure that all boaters meet TWRA’s Tennessee’s Required Equipment Checklist published in The HANDBOOK of Tennessee Boating Laws and Responsibilities. These checks include a physical inspection of all boaters vessels and handing out booklets covering aspects of Recreational Boating Safety.

  1. Make an RSVP on the date vessel examiners will be on your dock.
