    So this gentlemen who is an avid boater, father of 4, and has a girlfriend now...etc etc etc, for $500 a week? something is wrong with the facts, at 500 a week , you dont go boating if you care for the expenses of the family ( 4 kids and a pregnant girlfirend). many maids make 500 a week and do not have extra money for those activities. but it does show smarts and capabilites, why did he not tell his colleague, hey ! dont go! too heavy! So he made a wrong judgment and wants owners or insurance to pay for his wrong judgment? how about the person he was helping, how is he involved in liability? story is too short and incomplete. lame.

    Wish you luck. So many entities in Florida go without insurance. Just had to turn down a vicious dog bite where owner and habourer had no insurance coverage and no assets.
