"when the USCG boards your vessel for an inspection. "
So, don't waste their time and yours. Call the USCG Infoline 1-800-5647 or your local USCG Auxiliary and get a free voluntary inspection done, while you are still in the yard or at the dock.
They'll come give you a full inspection--and there are no penalties, no reports, no tickets. If you pass, you get a decal to put on your hull, and when USCG units see the decal--they often will just go elsewhere, knowing that you've already taken the step of getting a voluntary inspection.
If you "fail" you'll get a list of what you need to be in full compliance, and you've lost nothing.
