Boaters’ first responsibility is safety

Boaters’ first responsibility is safety
News from Baltimore Sun:

As boaters and marine enthusiasts we were saddened to read of the uptick in deaths on the water this season ( Aug. 10).

Boating is a passion. Once you’re away from shore and breathing in the salty air, a sense of freedom is palpable. It’s easy to get swept away in the excitement of going out for a trip without much forethought, but boaters must plan ahead to ensure they return safely and in the same good spirits.

A boater’s license is easy to obtain, but understanding weather patterns, checking mechanical and safety equipment, and most of all, taking the perils of the water seriously, are vital skills for a captain. While he or she is primarily responsible for those on board, it’s also important to train your passengers on personal safety. Not only that, but you should take a moment to remind them of how to behave and how to react to danger every time they travel on your vessel. Your guests will ultimately respect you more for your leadership and instruction.

Each passenger should have at least a basic understanding of how to call for help, where…………… continues on Baltimore Sun

What Most Anglers Don’t Know About Their Boat Insurance Policies

Jim Kalkofen
Published April 11, 2012

Anglers pay more attention to their electronics than they do their boat insurance; more attention to lure color than boat insurance; more attention to the next cast than boat insurance.

    Many boaters may not be properly insured.  This includes tournament anglers, guides, those who give boat rides/demos and anyone driving boats owned by others.  Boaters need insurance policies designed especially for them. 

Even though boat insurance has been a topic of discussion at National Professional Anglers Association meetings, a marine insurance specialist shared more insights recently.  Bob Luellen, a 20-year veteran in this business, said, “It’s best to own a stand-alone policy created specifically for what an individual needs, not a band-aid added to another policy.”

He first ran into pro walleye anglers in 2008 when he fished a Professional Walleye Trail event.  He traveled with Mark Martin, and was a co-angler. Bob said, “Every pro I talked with did NOT understand the type of insurance he needed.”  He was curious, because his regular job was insuring big boats for the likes of Bruce Willis, John Travolta and others.  Being licensed in 48 states and representing 20 national companies, he w…………… continues on IceFishingFIRST

First signs of boat show arrive in Atlantic City
News from Press of Atlantic City:

Hundreds of shrink-wrapped boats have been arriving at the Atlantic City Convention Center in preparation for the city’s annual indoor boat show, which begins Wednesday and runs through Sunday.

The Progressive Insurance Atlantic City Boat Show will fill up nearly 250,000 square feet of space at the convention center, including yachts, power boats, fishing boats, personal watercrafts, sailboats and pontoons.

Setting up takes several days and, in some cases, heavy machinery, such as a 10,000 pound forklift or a 35-ton marine hoist, said Jon Pritko, show organizer for the National Marine Manufacturers Association.

“Some of the larger boats, the tops have to be disassembled and re-erected,” he said.

The boats began being moved into the convention center on Saturday morning, he said.

“It really is an impressive sight, especially to see some of the boats coming in off the road,” he said.

The boat show will also include about 250 exhibitors, he said.

Pritko said the show is about the boating lifestyle as well as promoting boats and boating.

“It’s looking at the world from a different vantage point,” he said.

The National Marine Manufacturers Association estimates new boat sales increased about 5 percent in 2011. This increase followed several years of declines, including a drop of 10 percent…………… continues on Press of Atlantic City
