An ounce of prevention plus another ounce of preparation is worth a pound of cure when it comes to keeping your boat afloat, seaworthy, and safe. Here a few items to make sure you have on your pre and post boating checklist. As a lifelong boater myself, I can honestly say I occasionally overlook some of these in my rush to get on or off the water. A written checklist helps to avoid unintended shortcuts when leaving the dock for your afternoon cruise or sail or when leaving the boat after a relaxing day on the water.
These are basic suggestions and many of you will have your own checklist based on past experiences. Happy boating from the team at Novamar Insurance.
