An insured snippet of advice

From one who knows NOT what she’s talking about most of the time. But does concerning a Squirrel being installed, as a (highly important) afterthought to the boat itself being built and fitted out. A sort of cart before the horse situation, but we live ‘n learn…

Dave rang Mr Boat Safety Certificate today to make sure we didn’t need (the certificate) doing again. There’s an empty space next to the Squirrel “Stove” section on ours, because it was but a space on the floor at the time of inspection.

So we thought we’d better cover our ass(es) and make sure what the score was with a retro fit. He said there was no need for the Safety Certificate to be re-done, it stands as is / was at the time of the BSC being carried out. But he also told us to inform the insurance company so they can add it to their records which we did, and it has, end of and phew…
 
For anyone adding a new appliance (?) to their boat that’s listed on your current BSC (with N/A or a blank space next to it). Always check it out and inform the insurer if advised to, personally I would anyway.
 
See I’m a veritable fountain of knowledge occasionally…
