INSURANCE FOR SKI & WAKE INBOARD BOATS
Tow boats can be used for waterskiing, wakeboarding, wake surfing, and everyday cruising. The wake-size and shape are important factors when participating in water sports. The shape is determined by the configuration of the ballast. Newer ski boats, post 2012, have systems that automatically add an even amount of weight to both sides of the craft.
Whether you use your ski boat to water ski or in wakeboard tournaments or simply for personal pleasure, it has to be backed up with a strong policy. Tournament and club skiers often require higher liability limits. A ski boat insurance policy should cover your boat, protect you in the event of liability arising from bodily injury or property damage to others, and provide medical payments coverage.
There are several checklist items that are specific to ski boats. The machinery is complex that requires care and attention. Get regular checkups by a trained professional. This will help ensure long-term use. In addition, marine waxes applied to the hull will provide an extra layer of UV protection. UV protection is also advisable for all leather, plastic, rubber, vinyl, Plexiglas and carbon fiber surfaces. Finally, rinse and wipe down the vessel after every use.
