One summer, a party of four took a sailboat out on a Great Lake at about 1:00 am. Once they were a few miles from shore, they decided to take a midnight dip, all four of them, before the boat was anchored. As soon as the captain jumped in the water, he realized what they had done. By the time he began furiously swimming toward the boat, it had already drifted 20 feet in 10 seconds. His lifeless body was found a week later floating near shore. Two of the passengers were able to tread water for four hours and were rescued by some early morning fisherman. The Coast Guard located the other passenger. Unfortunately, he did not survive. The boat, it had drifted about eight miles south.

Next, the captain received a letter from a lawyer representing one of the passengers. Now he wishes he had our Boat Insurance policy!
