Unfortunately, sometimes our property gets damaged. And a boat, even in storage or on a trailer, is not immune. Storms, theft, collisions, or fires are good reasons to look into boat owners insurance. Liability fishing boat insurance may be required to be accepted at some marinas, or if you operate in an area with heavy boat traffic, this will help protect against lawsuits from damage that may have occurred due to your boat.
Price of coverage, of course, is a big determining factor with boat insurance. And it is difficult to imagine for every possible thing that can go wrong, but take your time and read the fine print. For example, it looks like most boat insurance will not cover damage from sharks. Maybe something to keep in mind before starting your next chum line. Remember to always have your boat registration up to date.
