Fairport needs our help.  Click on the link to vote for Fairport as the coolest-small-town in America.  If you’ve never had the opportunity to visit Fairport you’re missing out.  Fairport has taken advantage of the fact that the Erie Canal passes right through the center of the village.  On either side of the Canal Fairport has provided its residents and visitors the ability to walk, bike, and eat directly canal side. 

As a boater Fairport is one of the more popular spots along the Canal.  Canal Days held the first weekend in June is one of the largest events held along the Canal with attendance approaching 250,000 each year. 

So help Fairport be the coolest town in America in Budget travels 11th annual contest.  You can vote once every 24 hours, so join me and the rest of the membership of the New York Boater in helping Fairport NY be the coolest small town in America.

Each year in conjunction with earth day, volunteers gather throughout the 524 miles of the NYS Erie Canal System to take part in the annual Canal Clean Sweep program that is sponsored in part by the NYS Canal Corporation and Parks & Trails NY.  This year there are more than 75 events scheduled throughout the system and many are centered around the waterfront which as boaters often goes a long way towards making our experiences even greater.

Boat Insurance the Fine Print

As we all make our way to the water this boating season, besides the annual list of tasks that we all perform in the spring such as applying a fresh coat of bottom paint or a good wax job perhaps one of the most important things that we need to take a look at is our boat insurance policy.

Boat Us Insurance wants us to look at the fine print in our insurance policies for these six items.

The Consequential Damage Fine Print:  Half of all sinking’s occur at the dock when some small part below the waterline fails.  However, these parts, an outdrive bellows for example-most often fail due to “wear, tear and corrosion” or lack of maintenance, so the policy won’t pay for a new outdrive bellows.  But here’s the rub: as a consequence of the failed bellows, your boat is now sunk and likely a total loss.  Who pays for that?  That’s why you need “consequential damage” coverage that pays for losses that often start with a failed part that may be excluded under the policy.  The small inexpensive part that failed may not be covered but most importantly the rest of the total loss will be.  One caveat, this consequential damage coverage often applies only to specific types of losses.  For example, the immediate consequential damage resulting from any fire, explosion, sinking de-masting, collision or stranding.
