Why Boat Insurance Doesn't Help A Lousy Sailor

Written by John Edwardson

For thousands of years men have sailedrepparttar seas. Fromrepparttar 149479 earliest trips byrepparttar 149480 discoverers and settlers ofrepparttar 149481 Americas, Australia andrepparttar 149482 Pacific Islands, through Odysseus' voyage to Troy and beyond torepparttar 149483 time of Swashbucklers inrepparttar 149484 Caribbean mankind has made exciting voyages torepparttar 149485 far corners ofrepparttar 149486 world.

In those early days hard cold steel and brass protectedrepparttar 149487 men and their ships. Today we have boat insurance, GPS systems, sonar and underwater charts.

While boat insurance is not as glamorous as a fancy cutlass nor as exciting as a cannon it does offerrepparttar 149488 boat owner something that allrepparttar 149489 cutlasses and cannons cannot. It can replace your ship if you lose it. Inrepparttar 149490 wild and wooly days of wooden ships and iron men you usually needed one ship to steal another.

Why not just sail away or blast somebody to flinders if they are trying to steal your boat?

I must make a confession; I make a terrible sailor. I am one of those people that Dramamine was invented for. I get seasick watching a pirate movie or riding a Washington State Ferry, that is hardly a rough ride at sea.

Why Boats Are A Pleasure... But You Still Need Boat Insurance

Written by John Edwardson

One ofrepparttar greatest pleasures that a man can have is owning his own boat. It goes back torepparttar 149478 days of adventure onrepparttar 149479 high seas when a man was absolute monarch of his realm as a captain of his ship.

Today there are very few places thatrepparttar 149480 average man can be master and commander of his own destiny. But owning a boat is not without risk or expense. At one time cannons and carronades protectedrepparttar 149481 owner and captain from loss today it is boat insurance that protects a man from loss.

It might seem like a small thing but boat insurance is essential to protecting an asset that you might have worked your entire life to own.

The greatest joy in boating is that you are responsible for your own fate. That means responsible and in some sense autonomous fromrepparttar 149482 rest ofrepparttar 149483 world. What boat owner hasn't dreamed of sailing torepparttar 149484 Sea of Cortez?

All alone with justrepparttar 149485 deep blue quiet all around you andrepparttar 149486 vault of stars above to light your way; what could be better? Listening torepparttar 149487 plaintive whale song offrepparttar 149488 coast of Hawaii while your family sits in happy companionship, that isrepparttar 149489 way to spend your leisure.
