When you own a boat, there are many responsibilities to consider. One of these is deciding whether you want to keep your boat at a marina by signing a rental agreement. Because doing so is a legal commitment, you should take some time to think about your marina rights and how they apply. 

1. Understand Your Lease

When trying to figure out what your rights are at a marina, take a look at your lease. There, you should be able to find all of your rights and obligations in written form. While reviewing the agreement, make sure to ask any questions that come up. 

2. Clarify Restrictions

In most cases, marina rental agreements list several restrictions. Be sure to note any that apply to you, and ask for clarification about anything you do not understand before you sign the agreement. Sometimes, overlooking this part of a lease can lead to unexpected fines.

3. Plan for Emergency Weather

Although insurance protects against some emergency situations, there are also exclusions. For this reason, you should also figure out what responsibilities you have when it comes to planning for emergency weather. In the event of a disaster, you do not want to find yourself unexpectedly liable. 

Keeping your boat at a marina can have many benefits. Understanding your rights and responsibilities can make the experience as enjoyable as possible.
