Re: NE Insurance Rates - Reasonable?
...for anyone with assets, not carrying liability insurance is stupid.
True. And for anyone with no assets to lose, not carrying liability insurance is someone else's problem.
I read through his attempt to justify his choice not to spend $168.93 a year on insurance, and it comes across to me as a bunch of self-pitying excuses. If this guy were to cause damage to someone else's property, I suspect that we'd hear a bunch of similar excuses why he doesn't have to pay. Or more likely, he'd flee and not be heard from again.
I just wonder how the marina is willing to have him. What policy did he give them when he rented his slip?
I respect his past service to our country, but that's about where my respect stops. I mean, pay for the damn haulout and insurance surveys (those are one-time costs that can be amortized over the life of the boat) and get on with it, for chrissake. $168.93 a year, and he's not willing to pay. I don't get it.
