ERIE, Pa., May 23, 2018 /PRNewswire/ — After a long winter, boat enthusiasts are ready to get the boat out of storage and hit the water. Before making waves, it’s important to check your boat and all your equipment. Even if your boat has been in a protective shelter during the cold winter months, damage is still possible. Some of the damages could be covered by boat insurance.

“If you want protection for your own boat – including permanently attached equipment, any boating equipment and accessories, outboard motors and boat trailers – you need to carry physical damage coverage. Routine maintenance is not covered under your boat policy,” says Dave Freeman, vice president, Personal Lines and Regional Underwriting Officer at Erie Insurance.

 Erie Insurance offers coverage for your boat and provides four tips to make sure it is ready for summer.

If you decide to pass on insuring your boat against damages, experts still suggest a call your insurance agent.

“Boat owners should at a minimum carry liability insurance, which covers them for any damage they may cause to someone’s property or if they cause an injury to someone else,” says Freeman.
