Interesting question, any Insurance experts out there? Location may be a factor, out on the open ocean where it is not too crowded might be acceptable. It is possible that most boats worth insuring, or required to be insured because of a loan, are probably big enough to have an engine, with some exceptions of course, that being where an engine has been removed and not replaced.
