Every year lifeboats respond to thousands of incidents, many of which could have been prevented with simple safety precautions. Even the most experienced seafarers should prepare for the worst. The RNLI can help make your boat as safe as possible – you owe it to yourself and your crew.
The RNLI can offer you a completely free, friendly and confidential service that looks at safety aspects involved with your boat. SEA Check is neither a test nor an inspection and there is no pass or fail. Conducted by one of our highly trained volunteers, SEA Check is a personal face-to-face safety advice service that takes place on board your own craft. You set the time and we tailor our visit to your vessel and the type of boating that you do. Whether you’re a newcomer, or an experienced boater, our unique one-to-one service will give you an opportunity to ask any niggling questions on equipment or emergency procedures.
To help you safely on your way we also provide a pack of free publications to ensure that next time you go afloat you are more prepared. So what are the benefits?
A free independent check of safety equipment.
An opportunity to discuss safety matters.
The satisfaction of completing a check.
A sticker showing your boat has completed the check.
Your copy of the check form, which may attract further benefits.
Helping the RNLI in its core activity of saving lives at sea.
Is SEA Check really free? Absolutely! The RNLI believe that prevention is better than cure and we want to make sure that everyone gets the right advice.
