Just because something happens at your home, it doesn't mean it's covered. If I run over somebody with my car in my driveway, my homeowner's policy isn't going to cover it. My auto policy will -- as long as it wasn't done intentionally, anyways.

You've chosen poor examples -- usually when giving this sort of list, your examples are stuff that's obviously not covered, but two of your three examples probably *are* covered by most homeowners or renters policies. If you're skydiving and smash through somebody's roof, or hurt somebody while you land, your liability is probably covered. And if you shoot somebody accidently with an arrow, that's probably covered too.
Running over somebody with a boat probably isn't, because it's a motor vehicle and they generally require seperate insurance.
Nashville's required metro permit (as described by cadconversions in ) seems a good compromise to the difficulties of proving insurance.
