Most boats need to be registered with the ported state, even very small day sailors. Maybe the states could require insurance when registering. The same way cars are required to have liability insurance when registering.

Actually, the states would like this, another way to make money off boaters. Part of the money could go to the federal government to pay the Coast Guard.
