Re: Is insurance required to enter Bahamas?
If your boat is paid for and not worth much,, the only reason to have insurance is to protect any significant assetts you may have. If you have no such assetts, then you are "judgement proof" and I'd forego insurance. Basically, poor people have no need for insurance.
An excellent example of taking personal responsibility.
Health insurance is one thing-- there are people who truly can't afford to buy health insurance, and living isn't really an optional activity. But sailing is optional, and you should be willing to pay the price of admission, which in my thinking, includes coverage to protect others against your mistakes.
