Seminar covers insurance issues


Ft. Lauderdale Mariners’ Club is hosting its 24th annual marine seminar on Thursday, Oct. 30, the day before the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show begins.

Though established for insurance agents, brokers and underwriters, admiralty attorneys and marine surveyors, several of the seminar’s seven sessions address insurance and legal issues of interest to yacht captains, including one session about liabilities related to seasonal navigation limits as it relates to weather, another about the impact of MLC on large charter yachts (especially on their full- and part-time crew), and how far the criminal acts exclusion extents to owners and captains (do violating rules of the road count?).

Cost to attend the one-day seminar begins at $465 (by Sept 23). Membership in the FLMC is not required. Attendance is limited to 535. The event will be held at the Hyatt Regency Pier 66 Resort and Marina on 17th Street.

The club will also hold a golf tournament the day before, on Tuesday, Oct. 29. For more information or to register for either event, visit
