It's not compulsory but yes you do, not really for theft so much but if you run into someone and chop their legs off you are in a fair bit of financial trouble potentially.

Many of us use http://www.craftinsure.com/ - about 50 - 60 for a typical SIB outfit a year.

I believe all inland waterways, e.g. canals, rivers and lakes require insurance, certainly the popular ones do.

Just think why people have car insurance its a no brainer and pretty cheap compared to car insurance. Definately worth it.
