I am afraid that the uninsured boaters are much more common than we realized, especially there is no requirement by the state. I wonder if there is uninsured boater insurance just like in the automobile side.

In today's economy, the first thing many boat owners will do is to drop their boat expense. This particular true when the owner has no net worth at all, he is not risking much when he is being sued. Suck to be the other boaters
