    Go over every clamp, hose, check for any loose hardware , battery connections etc........... as most Dealer Prep guys are in a big hurry and tend to miss a few things, you should get a copy of the set up and assembly check list, go over EVERYTHING they said they have checked off.......

    Then when you get to the water.......................

    I dont know where you live, but here I called my local coast gaurd and they told me the safety equipment that I needed. You can even go to the coast gaurd station, have them do a safety check, they will give you a sticker, and if you get pulled over later in the year you can show them the sticker and they will let you go. Good luck and be careful.
