Keeping Your Boat Legal
The Boating Legal Guide


by Curt Epperson – Attorney at Law

Today’s heightened security and legal requirements make it more essential than ever to organize legal documents for your boat and know the basics of the law regarding cruising, boat ownership and even your responsibilities when chartering a boat. This practical guide is written in a Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) format that makes it easy to read and easy to find the information you need. It will help to understand today’s legal requirements, insurance contract language and coverage, and to develop a system to organize your boats documents, maintain the proper records for insurance purposes and manage border crossings to Canada, Mexico or the Bahamas. Information such as salvage rights and legal requirements of mariners are explained in easy to understand terms. The book is full anecdotes that describe real situations and how to avoid potential problems and a financial loss. The directions for creating your own on-board binder to organize all important ship’s and crew documents is described in the book, or an Organization Binder is available for purchase as a companion to the book. 160 Pages. Pub 2006.
