Recreational boating and watercraft competition are staples of the American Summer. Responsible water sport play can be a great outlet for family fun. Caution is advised, however. According to the U.S. Cost Guard, insurance claim costs for boat accidents, which included over 5,000 fatalities, hit $38,000,000 in 2012.
The proper boat insurance coverage was important in 2012, and presumably, it will be more important in 2013. Avoid the expensive ordeal of having to replace equipment damaged in an accident. Some insurance companies cover all boating accidents, which includes accidents that involve only one vehicle. Others do not. Because of the hefty costs involved with fatalities, most insurance companies, if not all, will provide medical and court-cost coverage for your watercraft.
