NOTICE: Proof of insurance required for CBPBA boating events.
Annually, for all Chesapeake Bay Power Boat Association boating events (i.e., official poker runs), Captains are required to have proof of insurance on file with the club.
We need a copy of the Declaration(s) of Coverage Page, showing what is covered and the coverage period. Our insurer has made this a requirement, it's not an option. So it's very important we meet the obligation, otherwise we'll have to turn people away the morning of an event.
No one is interested in the rates your paying or the T's and C's of the policy. Each policy has a 1 or 2 page section which is a Declaration of Coverage, showing what assets are covered by the policy and the... [Read More]

Vessel Safety Check Program
The Chesapeake Bay Power Boat Association fully supports the national Vessel Safety Check Program.
Annually, many of us go through the VSC program and receive the sticker. Scheduling a VSC is very easy, they'll even come to your dock. This is not a law enforcement review, if you don't pass, you WILL NOT receive any sort of ticket or citation, The purpose of the courtesy Vessel Safety Check is to find and identify any deficiencies before you're pulled over.
As you commission your boat, here's the list of minimum requirements. http://www.safetyseal.net/
