|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
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 - its just a matter
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.
