If It’s Not Raining Why Do I Need An Umbrella?

There are many misconceptions about this type of insurance. An umbrella can be personal or commercial. A personal umbrella would provide additional liability insurance for you if you are being sued for bodily injury and/or property damage you may have caused to others through your negligence that would involve your auto, home, boat, motorcycle or 1 or 2 family rental house (if insured and deeded in your personal name) policy.

Dear Readers, It is bittersweet that we write you, the readers of Boating on the Hudson, this one last note. As so many of you have heard, my husband Phil & I have sold the marina & RV park to Jason Young, owner of Clark’s Steakhouse here in Schuylerville.

After 32 years we made the difficult decision to retire. Difficult as you all know how much we have loved the marina business and meeting and making friends with so many of you over the years. The marina and the entire Hudson River and NYS Canal System needs some young and new blood to take it through to the future.

BOAT TALK WITH with Alex - October 2017

Question: Help me Alex: My engine stalls in neutral, at idle, only.

For example your outboard starts right up, keeps running with throttle applied in neutral, but shuts down the moment you come back to idle speed in neutral, the issue is likely to be a sticky or broken AIS (automatic idle speed) valve. This valve controls idle speed by regulating air intake, and when it gets stuck in the wrong position, it can shut you down cold.
