BoatUS offers tips on peer-to-peer rentals
News from Boating Industry:

ALEXANDRIA, Va., – Airbnb may a popular “peer-to-peer” lodging site on the web, but if you want to rent a boat in your local area or away, you’ve got options, too. Boatbound.com, Boatsetter.com and Cruzin.com are just a few of the new crop of online websites offering a chance to rent a boat for the day or weekend. These services, which connect private boat owners to renters, can help owners recoup some expenses, and can also give non-owners a chance to get on the water with friends without the cost of full-time ownership. So what do you need to know? Boat Owners Association of The United States (BoatUS) has some information for both boat owners and renters.

  1. Renters do not want boats that are not safe and or can barely get out of the marina, so these services are often better suited to newer vessels less than 10 years old. Older, larger or faster boats may require a survey or inspection. Rental costs vary widely based on boat size and location, and renters typically are required to have some boating experience as well as a deposit.
  2. These peer-to-peer boat rental websites generally handle every part of the transaction, including taking deposits and…………… continues on Boating Industry

GEICO offers boat owners money saving tips on winter storage
News from HispanicBusiness.com:

By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Insurance Weekly News — If you and your boat are in a cold climate, there is a good chance that freezing winter temperatures could cause damage to it and your wallet. From the engine parts to the hull, keeping your boat in the water during the frigid cold is like throwing your wallet overboard. To save you money on costly repairs, GEICO encourages boat owners to choose a winter storage option that best protects your investment from the elements. “The ideal place for your boat during the winter is out of the water,” said Eric Baillargeon , GEICO Insurance Agency Boat Program Manager. “Extreme cold can wreak havoc on your boat’s engine and ultimately your wallet. Some insurance carriers may also offer a discount on boat insurance if you winterize and store your boat to protect it from unnecessary wear and tear this time of the year.” There are a variety of inexpensive winter storage options available for boat owners. Depending on the size and type of your boat, you may be able to conveniently store your boat on a trailer in a driveway or backyard. If a trailer is not a viable option, most marinas offer blocking services, which places your boat on a series of wooden blocks or jacks. “With blocking, your boat is exposed to the elements, but it’s out of the water and accessible throughout the winter for maintenance,” said…………… continues on HispanicBusiness.com

If the family’s Portuguese water dog hops aboard your boat and slips on his sea legs, a new form of insurance will provide money to fix his injuries — or to pay for his funeral.

The Boat Owners Association of the U.S., or BoatUS, said Thursday it is offering new pet insurance coverage, which includes up to $ 1,000 in veterinary expenses after a pet suffers an injury while boating. The pet injury coverage comes automatically with the association’s insurance policies.

Marina Fest Offers a Variety of Water Activities

Marina Fest Offers a Variety of Water Activities
News from Patch.com:

The third annual Marina Fest was held May 19-20 and introduced visitors to a variety of recreational activities in Marina del Rey, including boating, fishing and underwater adventuring. Crowds at the compact, easy-to-navigate show were modest, giving exhibitors a chance to chat extensively with visitors in detail.

The star of the show was teenage sailor Abby Sunderland, who was there with her book, Unsinkable, about her attempt to become the youngest person to sail solo around the world.

A highlight of Marina Fest was the 136-foot-long Bill of Rights, a tall ship that was open for deck tours and sunset sails at Fisherman’s Village.

The vessel is a four-decade-old replica of a 19th century gaff topsail Gloucester schooner and operated by the American Tall Ship Institute.

Coast Guard Auxiliary representative Robin Neuman was at Marina Fest to recruit students for the range of safety classes offered at Cal and Del Rey Yacht Clubs from June to December. Classes include How to Read a Nautical Chart, Boating Skills and Seamanship: an Introduction to Boating Safety, and Suddenly in Command: What to Do if Your Skipper Becomes Incapacitated. In addition to valuable information, attendees received a discount on boating insurance.

February Offers Opportunities for Boat Insurers

February Offers Opportunities for Boat Insurers
News from Insurance Journal:

For boat owners and prospective boat owners, summer doesn’t start in June.

It starts much earlier than that. In many cases, it starts in February, when a flood of boat shows are held. As a result, brokers and agents often see opportunities for writing new boat policies this time of year.

“Insurers assess the size, type and value of the boat, and the waterways in which it will be navigated, when determining how much you will pay for insurance coverage,” said Loretta Worters, vice president with the Insurance Information Institute (I.I.I.), which is based in New York.

The Coast Guard reported 4,604 boating accidents in 2010, involving 672 deaths and 3,153 injuries. Recreational boating accidents totaled up to $ 35.5 million of damage to property, too.

According to the I.I.I., a typical boat insurance policy includes deductibles of $ 250 for property damage, $ 500 for theft and $ 1000 for medical payments. Additional coverage can be purchased for trailers and other accessories.

The organization reports that most companies offer boat insurance with liability limits starting at $ 15,000 with the capability of going up to $ 300,000. Boat owners may also consider purchasing an umbrella liability policy which will provide additional protection for their boat, home and car.

Brokers and agents can also consider offering co…………… continues on Insurance Journal
