School’s out…for Summer, anyway. This always brings about that time of year where the world slows down a bit and gives us all a chance to just sit back and enjoy our vacations, whether it means jet setting off to some private island or just spending the weekends boating down in Grand Isle.

If you’re summer resembles mine, it will look more like the later of those two. Packing up the bathing suits, the sunscreen, the family, and the party barge, and just heading out for a day on the water. Or, maybe just grabbing a few of your closest buddies, hopping on the bass boat, and heading out for a few days of fishing and fun.

However you plan on using your boat or personal watercraft, make sure that you are being as safe as possible. Remember that you probably aren’t the only one who had the great idea to spend this summer on the water. The crowds on the water can be unpredictable and so can the weather and so many other factors. I found this great article on safe boating tips I would highly recommend to anyone considering spending their weekends on a boat.

And of course, NEVER go out in your boat without the proper insurance. Why do you need insurance for your boat or personal watercraft? You’ll enjoy the water ever more when you’re not worried about the safety of yourself, your passengers or your investment.

But, there are many types of boat insurance, with different types of coverage. Make sure you are speaking with a boat insurance expert. Call Henry Insurance Service today to speak with one of our insurance experts on how we can best insure your summer fun.
