    I hope that it wasn't caused by something that the insurance won't cover.

    Thinking of problems caused by external contractors, who may or may not have liability insurance.

    Pulled a cleat out of the fuel dock ? :D I've always been amazed at the space cadets that leave the boat in gear held with a spring line run to a cleat that I wouldn't tie my dingy up to. And they just wander off and go buy beer while the boat gets fueled.
