Repair or Replacement
Depending on how much you paid for your boat, you may not be easily able to replace your boat or repair it if it is damaged. If your boat is on your property and is damaged, it may be covered by your home insurance but the coverage will not be as extensive as it would be with a dedicated boat policy. But if your boat is in the water or away from your home, home insurance will not cover it.
