Do I need to get different insurance for the boat? 

You would need to get commercial rental insurance, which we can help you setup in a week with our partner (CANADA ONLY, not valid for International Vendors). You can have any insurance policy that covers liability for watercraft rentals (commercial activities). AnchorsBook has an exclusive partnership with Gifford Carr to fast track our vendors insurance applications for watercraft rentals, and get them the lowest rates in the market!
