AMEX Platinum Boat rental insurance

I will be renting a boat in Florida on Labor Day. If I charge it on my Platinum Card, do I get any insurance coverage (similar to the car rental insurance)?

I'd suggest that you call AmEx. But I would tell you that I bought a boat using AmEx Platinum, and shorttly thereafter damaged the prop, so I called AmEx and asked if purchase protection covered that, and the answer was that boats are excluded. This is not a perfect analogy though.

I charter sailboats in San Diego several times a year, and I have been told by AmEx that they do not offer any sort of insurance/protection benefit when I pay with my card.

If you end up hearing otherwise, I'll be really interested to learn about the details.
