An extract from the latest Newsletter should be noted: -
Paul Bancks, the Crown Estate's Coastal Manager says, “Responsibility for ensuring that a mooring is fit for use lies with the mooring owner and most boat insurance policies have a clause that demands that the mooring must be inspected annually and that the person doing the inspection must have insurance.” This double cover means that in the event of an incident the cost of any damage or recovery operation is covered. An owner who signs their insurance proposal form knowing that their mooring has not been inspected is in breach of contract and in most cases will not be insured and will be personally liable for any damage or salvage costs that arise should the mooring fail.

This is why every member of the Carrick Castle Boat Club has to sign a Mooring Agreement with the club ageeing to service their mooring annually and have a least Third Party Insurance cover for their vessel.
