U.S. Coastguard Aux.

They have a good program running over here in the U.S to encourage safe boating practises,put on by the coastguard Auxillary.
As well as free course over an 8 week period they offer to meet with you and conduct a safety check of your craft.
They go over a checklist to see if you have the correct boat equipment and how its installed/safety gear/documentation /etc.
If you pass, you get a vessel sticker which shows other agencies such as harbour police/lifeguard/coastguard/dept of fish and game that you are a "careful boater". (Helps in not getting pulled over so often!! )
This was the first RIB he had done and was very impressed with the boat.
So she's all kitted out and ready to go(just waiting to get that skeg replaced;hopefully next week!)
cheers Dal
