Vessel Insurance and Registration Requirement

The Town of New Shoreham now requires vessels on transient or private moorings, in the anchorage or on the Town Dock for two weeks or more, to provide the Harbors Department with valid registration or documentation as well as current insurance.  Insurance needs to cover, at minimum, liability  should vessel need to be removed from the waters of Block Island.
