Tribe Hosts US Coast Guard Vessel Inspections

February 25, 2021 @ 9:00 am 5:00 pm

For many years the Fish Commission has been inviting the US Coast Guard to meet with Tribal boat owners for free boat inspections. We have scheduled early inspections this year to assist boat owners who are interested in applying for the shellfish gear, as one of the application requirements for the Shellfish Gear Reimbursement Programs is a current USCG vessel safety decal.


February 25th

9:00 am -11:00 am — Deming Administration Office parking lot

1:00 pm – 3:00 pm — Blaine Harbor

Squalicum harbor for the remainder of the day, or days, if need be

Inspectors will also go to the boat owners’ home upon request. Please contact Tricia Cline at 360-592-5140, Nooksack Natural & Cultural Resources, to schedule location and time.

The lead Inspector is John Gresham, a Port Gamble S’Klallam Tribal member.

Please find the inspector checklists here, which is valuable for boat owners to review beforehand. We do have hard copies of the checklists at the Natural Resources Department for hand out.
