CBPBA Shake Down Cruise
Join us Saturday May 10th for the umpteenth annual Shakedown Cruise at Thursday's Steak and Crabhouse in Galesville. The way the weather has been acting we may be able to go back to calling it the Frostbite Cruise!
We will start off at 11:00 AM with US Coast Guard Auxiliary Safety Checks. This sticker will show everyone, including law enforcement, that your boat has all the necessary safety gear and you are a conscientious boater. Although it is not guaranteed, it is much less likely you will be boarded if you have an inspection sticker, so come out and get it done. We will start serving lunch around 12:00 PM, I will post the menu shortly. Rest assured... [Read More]

CBPBA Member Discounts and Perks
For a nominal $75 annual membership fee, our members already know there are a lot of perks and discounts associated with the CBPBA.

NOTICE: Proof of insurance required for CBPBA boating events.
Annually, for all Chesapeake Bay Power Boat Association boating events (i.e., official poker runs), Captains are required to have proof of insurance on file with the club.
We need a copy of the Declaration(s) of Coverage Page, showing what is covered and the coverage period. Our insurer has made this a requirement, it's not an option. So it's very important we meet the obligation, otherwise we'll have to turn people away the morning of an event.
No one is interested in the rates your paying or the T's and C's of the policy. Each policy has a 1 or 2 page section which is a Declaration of Coverage, showing what assets are covered by the policy and the... [Read More]

Vessel Safety Check Program
The Chesapeake Bay Power Boat Association fully supports the national Vessel Safety Check Program.
Annually, many of us go through the VSC program and receive the sticker. Scheduling a VSC is very easy, they'll even come to your dock. This is not a law enforcement review, if you don't pass, you WILL NOT receive any sort of ticket or citation, The purpose of the courtesy Vessel Safety Check is to find and identify any deficiencies before you're pulled over.
As you commission your boat, here's the list of minimum requirements. http://www.safetyseal.net/
