Like the OP says, what if he goes to the fuel dock and something out of his control happens, couldn't the insurer say "well you weren't supposed to leave, it says so right here"
and he doesn't get paid even though he has been paying the premiums?
It was NOT imprecise wording.

Websters says:
1: to sail about touching at a series of ports
1: to sail about on a pleasure trip.

Nothing within a harbor could be construed to constitute cruising. IF he had meant "do not operate" he would have said that.

And of course, some of the violation are bad sitting at the dock.
