If you wish to export any data for your own records or transfer any data to other user(s), you have to make sure to do so prior to proceeding with your boat deletion.

Similarly, as above. You will lose access on this boat and all associated records (e.g. inventory, tasks, alerts, documents, etc). The boat data will remain intact in the database and the boat owner will still have full access on them. Should you wish to regain access, you should contact the boat owner to share the boat anew with you.
