If you just bought a small fishing boat to take around the lakes and rivers surrounding Marietta, GA, you’re probably wondering if you need to call LG Insurance Group and get a policy on your new ride.
The short answer is: You might not. It depends on how small of a boat we’re talking here, of course. Essentially the question you need to consider is whether or not it could do any damage in an accident, and what you stand to lose if something happens to it. If you’re just rowing a little two hundred dollar inflatable raft, then there’s not much reason to worry about getting it insured. You’re not hitting any speeds that will hurt other boats in an accident or damage a pier or anything.
You may want to think about liability coverage if you’re taking other people out in your boat, but standard boat insurance is there to cover a boat in the same way auto insurance covers your car. If you can afford to repair or fix your boat out of pocket and it doesn’t have a motor in it, then there’s not much that can go wrong that will demand insurance.
But, you need to be honest with yourself here. If you spent a pretty penny on your boat, if it’s motorized, then you need to do yourself a favor and call LG Insurance Group and get covered. No matter how safe you are at piloting your boat, you never know what can happen on your next voyage, so be prepared for whatever may come your way as you explore the waters of Marietta, GA.
