Herrington North in Deale Maryland
was a great place to haul out
earlier this year and they allowed me to work
on my boat
without hesitation. They did require proof of liability insurance
and my $1M policy was accepted.
I don't mind an insurance
requirement or an "additional insured" rider to an existing policy or a policy written for a specific use and time period.
The boat yard has no idea how competent you are. You could start a fire, knock boat stands loose with your vehicle or worse yet move them intentionally, drop your entire rig on another boat, fall off a ladder, electrocute yourself, etc, etc.
An additional insured policy isn't for when you and the marina are in conflict, it's for when a third party sues you AND the marina over a specific incident.
We require groups renting
our event space to acquire 'event host insurance' and list us as an additional insured for any events
involving alcohol consumption
. If we carried this insurance year round we would have to charge all our customers substantially more to offset the cost. Same would apply to the boatyard.
As for the OP's other concern, I agree with the OP. Just tell me the truth. If you don't I'm likely to draw my own conclusions which may not be favorable to you. If you are honest with me we most probably will come to a mutually beneficial agreement.
