Boat Safety Checklist

Created by: SafetyCulture Staff | Industry: Transport & Logistics | Downloads: 24

A boat safety checklist is used by skippers to ensure that their boats, crew, and passengers leave and return to the port safely. Customize this checklist according to your country or state-specific Coast Guard requirements. Have an in-depth inspection of a boat's parts. Capture photo evidence of physical boat defects and instantly alert marine technicians. Have a centralized database of all records and avoid piles of paper-based records.
