1) You should contact
UCSC Purchasing and Risk Services as soon as possible to begin the due dilegence
process for UCSC insurance requirements. Typically, a charter consisting of
1-10 passengers requires $5 million in liability coverage, more passengers will
require greater coverage amounts.
2) You should contact
the Diving and Boating Safety Office for help in vetting vessels as to their
meeting Federal and State vessel regulations.
3) Principal Investigators
need to read the UCSC Scientific Boating Manual and understand their specific responsibilities
as to chartering a vessel under their auspices.
4) Please complete the Charter Questionanaire prior to contacting Purchasing so that insurance requirements can be determined.
5) Please use Charter

to leaving the dock.
