Re: New WA state insurance law??

Ron,

Not sure if you can get an insurance card/cert per say up that way. I have to carry a card for the vehicles, and take a copy of the cert paperwork I have to have for my marina with me in the boat. That has basic liability numbers, acct #, agent, company etc. I keep that with my boat registration etc. So If I am pulled over, get in an accident etc, I have the info handy. Or for that matter, if asked at a marina before being able to spend the night, I have the "proof of insurance" form I usually need.

Checked with my marina (port of bremerton) and they haven't heard about any new insurance law a side note the Patrick Henry is a steel hulled vessel (wonder if Halifax is still with them)

Re: New WA state insurance law??

To wrap this up.. I did manage to get in contact with the authors of the article.

Many of you were right, they were looking for seasonal/winter moorage. They have an oldish steel boat, apparently no insurance and no resources for the required survey in order to get that insurance. So despite the comments they made, this would be nothing out of the ordinary, and likely nothing 'new'. Certainly our marinas here require proof of at least liability insurance.

The article was posted last February and may well have been written many months prior to that, so the 'new' element was overstated or perhaps misunderstood by some of us.

It would also appear that the liability coverage is not a requirement for transient overnight moorage, so the concerns that came up here among some cruisers who frequent US waters is unfounded.. (though anyone up here with permanent moorage would be well covered in any case)

I think the 'hot button' was the reference to 'an enormous amount' of coverage without stating just what that meant..

Thanks to all who contributed here, Case closed, I suppose...

Re: New WA state insurance law??

Does sound like they wrote the wording incorrectly for the issue at hand. What in reality WAS, a simple requirement, that ALL of us with permanent moorage need. I've needed all the above since buying my boat 8 yrs ago.....so it is a much older rule than they imply.
