SEA Check is a free service offered by the RNLI to owners of leisure boats under 13.7 metres (45ft)

At the owners invitation, a trained volunteer will check relevant levels of safety equipment.

Our aim is to save lives at sea by educating, increasing awareness and promoting safety to all those who use the sea.
