My vehicle insurance covers the towed vehicle. My BOAT insurance covers ALL the other stuff.

Unfortunately, in the USA, most marinas REQUIRE boats that use their facilities to be insured.

|speciald||People have forgotten that the purpose of insurance is to pay for losses or costs that you routinely can't afford. Insurance was not originally designed to pay for well baby care. You need liability insurance to protect your other assets in case of an accident - remember that there are more lawyers currently in practice than ever existed at one time in the history of the world and they are out to get you. You probably should carry liability coverage and may have to take out a policy with some minimum liability coverage and a high deductable for property loss. Should not cost more than $100-130/year. Hope you never need the liability coverage.|

"Homeowners or renters may cover bodily injury but nothing for wreck removal." And environmental fees. Remember that if you sink, and your outboard fuel can causes a "fuel spill"...You'll probably get a $10,000 invitation from the USCG or other parties, to start with.
Homeowner and auto policies are often very competitive for small craft, just very limited in what they cover.

|tdreffin||I just sailed around the world on a 44' catamaran without insurance, never had an accident or damage. My husband and I preferred to put money we'd use for insurance into good navigational gear and tackle. It's truly a matter of how confident you feel about the area where you store your boat, as well as your abilities to handle emergencies when underway.|

I would roll those dice. Property loss is negligible. Homeowners should extend liability to your boat, double check.
Keep the money in your pocket. Lot's of scared people in the world not willing to take even a little risk.
