Re: Boat delivery list
Educate yourself on towing insurance. If you are being paid to move the boat your own Towboat/US policy does NOT apply, and the owner's doesn't either if he isn't aboard. I don't know the details of SeaTow policy. Towboat/US offers a separate delivery skipper policy I highly recommend.
I actually had this happen once. I was able to use my insurance and no questions were asked. We only need a tow about 2 miles though.
The lesson from the Icarus story is not about human failing.
It is a lesson about the limitations of wax as an adhesive.
If you have an engineering problem solve it.
