LAKE SUCCESS, N.Y., April 28, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- SkiSafe insurance is reminding boaters nationwide to tie all knots as they prepare their vessels for the 2016 season. A leading provider of boat and PWC insurance nationwide, SkiSafe is regularly consulting with clients preparing to launch for the season. SkiSafe is now making Certificates of Insurance immediately available, at no additional charge, for all new clients so that they can focus on spending time with friends and family on the water. Securing comprehensive boat and watercraft insurance is a starting point, but there are many steps that even experienced boaters must take before the season, among them:
- Cleaning your vessel's scuppers and drains.
- Inspect all hoses & clamps and test the boat's batteries.
- Clean the propeller and inspect & test all water systems.
- Consult a comprehensive boat maintenance checklist for additional suggestions.
In preparing their boat for the season, one step many boaters overlook is securing and documenting the insurance required by their lake, marina or storage facility. SkiSafe wants to ensure that every boater has the appropriate Certificate of Insurance in their hands before they reach the water. By making Certificates of Insurance immediately available online for all new clients, SkiSafe hopes to eliminate one problem boaters face every year.
SkiSafe Executive Vice President Howard Reiff further explained how boating trends made this a priority for clients, saying that "Every year more marinas, lakeowners & homeowners associations and storage facilities, are requiring boaters to present Certificates of Insurance with proof of liability listing the facility as an additional insured." SkiSafe's new program will automatically provide these Certificates and proof of coverage at no additional cost, as well as resend all documentation at every renewal.
