Mmm, I'm not sure about LIABILITY insurance for the Explorers, but would
assume that the Scout coverage would apply to any authorized Scouting
activity. However, IMHO, you probably should obtain insurance for the
boat itself, which should offer some form of liability coverage against
others damaged or injured by the operation of the boat.
