117. I am responsible for my boat being secure

I was hit by another boat, a few years ago, which had inadvertently become a weapon. The owner lost control and hit several boats causing millions of dollars worth of damage. He was liable, even though he had no intent to use his boat as a weapon.
He may well have been equally liable, had he left the boat unattended and someone had stolen it, causing the same damage.
Everything you own adds to your potential liability.

But sailboats are not designed to be weapons. I'm sure you can get your head around that difference.
