There were times in my boat owning past when I would have at least met the guy and checked out his story, gone for a sail etc. They were the times when friends who'd happily come for a day sailing
with me, were incredibly busy and unable to spare a day or 2 when I hauled her for a clean up and bottom paint
I think we've all had that happen... I checked out your website. When you get your Wind
Wanderer, if it at all resembles the pic on your homepage, you let me know and I'll come help clean her up and won't even ask for a day sail! I wish you the best in your sailing endeavors.

Hmmm... thats a good point. On my policy I had my two partners listed as additional insured. It didn't cost me anything extra to add them either (Progressive.) It may be possible to add someone to your policy for a short time so that you're covered in the event that something happens over and above the security
