Hi Gerald, welcome to the forum.

In answer to your question, unlike cars, where insurance is compulsory, it is not for boats. However if you are boating in an area where there is likely to be other boats or water activities, it is sensible to have some sort of third party insurance.

Oxwich bay eh? What a great place to boat. We have 2 other members who boat around the Gower, hopefully they will be along soon to offer some guidance.

Which make did you buy and what type?

Good for you Gerald. I Googled it to find out what a Fisher 400 is like. She's basically a typical day fishing boat, great for recreational use.
I see from WSF forums you got her last August. :)
