Marina News + Events

Great Lakes Marina was the host site for the United States Power Squadron District 9 Picnic with Commander Jay Stevens on Friday, August 1.  The Power Squadron plays a huge role in boater safety here in the Great Lakes and across the nation.  The Power Squadron, a few members of which are slip customers here at GLM, offer Free Vessel Safety Checks.  Once your vessel has passed the safety check, you are given a sticker to place on your boat signifying that you’re in compliance with the legal requirements for vessel safety, including up-to-date flares and fire extinguishers, life jackets for all ages of passengers, operating batteries and bilge pumps, along with the proper placards.  While safety is very important in preventing being pulled over by the Muskegon County Sheriff’s Marine Division and Coast Guard, it more importantly helps ensure a safe boating summer :-)
