Assurance helps avoid costly Insurance Claims
How secure is your beloved watercraft on its mooring? When was the last time you checked your thru-hull fittings? Have you replaced your worn out mooring lines lately? Have you tested your bilge pumps for proper operation recently? Are you certain that whatever precautions you've taken - your vessel will be protected from a forecasted winter storm or perhaps a marina fire caused by old, worn-out wiring? Is that chart you're using an updated version assuring you that you won't run aground when making passage to your favorite weekend get-away? Do you have an updated Tide Book for your favorite cruising ground?

These are just some of the questions and concerns every mariner should consider when protecting his/her investment. Most major Insurance Companies carry some kind of boat owners insurance but standard policy riders rarely cover Salvage costs adequately. It is important that you secure the right kind of Boat Insurance that meets your needs and covers you adequately for the inevitable, "what - ifs." Experience has taught us that if it can happen - it will happen - it’s just a matter of time

Boats that can be salvaged will cost between $150.00 to $500.00 per foot to refloat depending on special equipment needs, health & safety hazards/risks, manpower and time involved. It is imperative that a boat owner has adequate insurance coverage to protect his/her investment and cover any salvage/repair costs that may be accrued in the event of an unforeseen accident.
