300 to 500K liability insurance is fairly stand requirement for US marinas.

I'm in Pensacola & spent time in Mobile. Just about all marinas along this stretch of the Gulf Coast will require a minimum of $300,000 in liability. Ballpark is $900 a year for a typical liability policy.

In Mobile, you're looking at Dog River for marinas. There are some on the Eastern Shore and further south, but I timed the drive to my office in Mobile and during rush hour it was the same time to get to Eastern Shore marinas as it was to drive to a marina in Pensacola. If you need to cross the Bayway, it's an hour minimum of drive time.

Later,
NJ
