Fremont Insurance points way for boaters to avoid most common small passenger-safety deficiencies

With the long-awaited arrival of boating season in Michigan, Fremont Insurance wants to make sure that boaters have properly ensured the seaworthiness of their vessel before making their maiden voyage to avoid costly run-ins with authorities and guarantee the safety of the vessels passengers.

"With an abundance of streams, rivers, ponds and lakes that the state has to offer, it should come as no surprise that boating is one of Michigan's most popular summertime activities," said Kurt Dettmer, vice president and chief marketing officer for Fremont Insurance.  "Unfortunately, in all the excitement to get back out on the water it can be easy to miss some common vessel deficiencies which may result in fines or in some cases may even compromise the safety of the vessel."

The United States Coast Guard has identified the top 10 small passenger vessel deficiencies that owners should check for, and correct if necessary, before their next Coast Guard examination.
