I work in the courthouse and you would not believe the stupid people filing stupid lawsuits for stupid reasons, mostly to harass someone.
I also look over Craigslist for kayaks and in Phoenix the CL is flooded with kayak rentals, mostly from business but the occasional private person seeking to make some cash from their private fleet also appears.
I had a friend, Nancy Kanu, who owned a kayak school but was driven out of business by the insurance companies who doubled her rates every year or two so I can imagine that only the business would be able to afford insurance.
Which leads me to the question of these private renters who probably do not have any insurance.
We all know that paddling has some inherent danger. More when you consider speedboats and rapids.
What are your thoughts about these private renters?
Aside from the ‘let the buyer beware’ thing.
