Meetings & Minutes
Beth Leonard, Technical Editor of BoatUS Magazine will speak at our March 12, 2014 meeting on the subject of "Why Boats Sink". THE FIRST RULE OF BOATING: KEEP THE WATER OUT...
All too often when that simple rule gets violated, the boat ends up a total loss. Sinking comes in number two on the BoatUS Marine Insurance Top Ten Claims, and number one in non-hurricane areas. Water most often finds its way in through those pesky holes below the waterline, but there are other ways boats go from on the water to under it including striking a submerged object, grounding, or collision. This presentation will share lessons learned from detailed analysis of the BoatUS Marine Insurance claims files and ins and outs of marine insurance with respect to sinking. Several case studies of the most common scenarios will be used to highlight what you can do to prevent your boat from becoming a statistic - or a case study in a future BoatUS claim story!
At that same meeting, we will vote on the new Bridge nominations...see them here.
The annual Change of Watch dinner and ceremony will be held on 22 March 2014 at the Fairfax American Legion POst. See here for details and reservation form.
