I don't think you mentioned what size boat we are talking about.

It is not a guarantee of not being boarded but at least around me it tends to work.
The CG Auxiliary gives and issues the safety check stickers, not the regular CG. The safety inspection is for recreational boats only, not boats taking on paying passengers for "training" or otherwise.

If you're helping someone and expecting something in return, you're doing business not kindness.

Re: Un-inspected passenger vessel - What emergency signals??

IN Canada an uninspected passenger vessel is an oxy moron. If you carry passengers your vessel is inspected by Ships Safety. That includes vessel stability test ,equipment and captains ticket. The courts await non compliance. Although my personal social preference approaches anarchy I agree with this policy
