Please excuse my abject ignorance: In getting a repack quote for my liferaft, the repacker mentioned a charge of $90 something for a USCG Certificate.
I asked him what that was...he just said: " You have to have it or the USCG gets snippy". Uhh... Huh???
Can someone kindly set me straight on this? -Is this just another hidden tax,or is there actually some good reason for it? And oh..." Compliance for it's own sake" isn't much of a reason by my reckoning...
