Liability risk with courtesy car
Having just returned to the litigious USA, the following was an unpleasant surprise.
For full-time cruisers who don't own a car, and therefore don't normally carry automotive liability insurance, it is wise to check the terms and conditions when a marina offers the use of a courtesy car. We found that the courtesy car at a marina we stayed at did not have its own liability insurance, and I suspect that that's true of most such places. I'm no lawyer, but as I read the "personal liability" coverage for our boat's insurance policy, liability incurred while using a courtesy car (also, rental cars) would not be covered.
We took a cab into town.
