no more than you were before...

the police, marine police, and coasties always had the authority to stop you any time for a safety check...and were required to stop so many based on their commands decisions.

the coasties will not make any money from fines arising from not having your card (or on you) so they have nothing to gain by stopping you just because of the new requirement...in other words... no new resource for funds...

my guess is there will be a flurry of activity to heighten awareness at the beginning of the season...then die off to the normal hardly any stops except for fishing checks near the beginning of each season.

and as before...if you show them a copy of your latest boarding report...they usually just wave you on if you passed and it was recent....

there doesn't have to be an infraction now to board and safety check.

always has been and probably always will be OK for a random stop for a safety check...any time...any place...

USCG holds that legal right near and dear...doesn't abuse it because it doesn't want to lose it...

Capt. Scott, how you doing, we still gotta have that beer in the club. Wish I could help on the subject but I just work buoy's, getting ready for seasonals, can't wait. We were just sanding and painting our 1957 45 ft buoy tender for the past two months, after one day of working buoys, it'll be beat up like its been thu war, LOL. Take care, maybe we can fish the jetty sometime.
