This course examines a variety of inland marine exposures faced by contractors and the policies available to cover those exposures. We will discuss builders’ risk coverage, installation floaters and contractors’ equipment policies. For each topic, we will discuss the coverage afforded by commonly used forms and some of the exclusions to watch out for. We will then discuss certain features of the Commercial General Liability policy and endorsements that are sometimes added. We will focus on the effect these features and endorsements have on a contractor’s insurance program.
