Kingston Boat Insurance

In 10 seconds, it Drifted 20 Feet

This summer, a party of four took a sailboat out on a Great Lake at about 1:00 am. Once they were a few miles from shore, they decided to take a midnight dip. All four of them. Before the boat was anchored.

As soon as the captain hit the water, he realized what they had done. By the time he began furiously swimming toward the boat, it had already drifted 20 feet. His lifeless body was found a week later floating near shore.

Two of the passengers treaded water for four hours until some early morning fisherman rescued them. The Coast Guard located the other passenger. He did not survive.

The boat drifted about eight miles south.

If you have spent any time in the water, be it a lake, river or ocean, you know what can happen, happens quickly. At Upper Canada Commercial Insurance Group Inc we will protect you, your boat and your passengers with the precise boat insurance needed for your vessel.

The Importance of Boat Insurance

The water may appear serene at times, but there is no telling when a storm could rear up or another boat could lose an engine and collide into you out of nowhere.

A boating accident can ruin your peace of mind, finances or in the case of the poor people in the sad story above, even take lives.

Who Needs Boat Insurance?

If you own a boat and would like to protect yourself, for a few dollars a month you will be protected against any calamity that occurs on the water or to your vessel. A boat insurance policy can protect you as well as your boat against liability in the event of an accident.

  • boat trailer coverage
