help needed from any boat owners on here
My grandpa, a retired Captian in the Navy, is too old to take care of his 40 foot fiberglass hull boat anymore. So the resposibility has come down to my dad and i. The city of Long Beach has informed us that the boat has to be inspected by them, becuase they consider it a safety hazard as it sits in the dock.
Heres what we know so far to get the boat "certified" by them.
1. Have to be able to drive it over to their service dock
2. learned from a freind that we need to have up-to-date emergency flares onboard.
What other kinds of things to we have to do/know? Is a license generally needed to piliot a boat through a harbor? life vests? any required navigation equipment? radio equipment? etc.
Thanks in advance,
