Why; insurance is cheap on a sailboat! All you need is liability try progressive--costs me $100.00 a year -28 ft.--Dale

Although we have insurance, I have never been asked for proof when visiting a marina.

And I would always make sure I had insurance before going anywhere -- including my own slip.

We require 3rd party for our regular moorage marina, but, like Donna, I cannot recall ever being asked for proof of insurance for a transient slip

Like Lake Superior said; insurance is cheap and if something happens like you punch a big hole in the side of that nice shiny Beneteau, you cannot imagine how cheap that insurance is.

Every marina in SoCal I've visited has asked for proof of insurance... I'm not only okay with that but am glad they do.... I slipped my boat for 8 months in a transient slip in Dana Point while waiting for a perm slip.... During that time I saw a lot of damage caused by other boaters.... To be honest, most of it was from trailer trash.... Err ummm .... I mean people who put their trailered boat in the wat for a long weekend.....

We've been asked for proof of insurance several times; guess it depends on the marina. But as others have said, I'm very glad they insist on it - there are some marinas here that have a lot of current if don't come in at slack tide, and many folks who just don't understand how big a challenge docking with 3 knots of current can be ...

This year a pretty new < 10 year old hunter 26 sank next to my mooring and they did NOT have insurance for some unknown reason and it sat for months with 1/2 a mast out of the water and is gonna cost them only god knows how much when there forced to deal with it

And i am really glad the guy next to me had good insurance when he did a Rodney Dangerfield and put his anchor roller through my cabin-top 5 weeks after the refit was finished

If a dirty bottom slows you down what do you think it does to your boat
