The only optional insurance offered is a high deductible damage waiver. No liability coverage.
Boat rental is kind of a cottage business , no national or regional co.s, so an insurance hole is there for the renter , and seems nobody wants to touch that risk at any price.
Looks like the only practical solution is to buy an old, but functional pwc, register and insure it. My carrier covers "similar craft" borrowed or rented under a standard boat / pwc policy.
