Re: NE Insurance Rates - Reasonable?

The problem people seem to miss is liabilityis what really puts the insurance company on the hook


I been there and done that with Seafever as when i bought it anybody that put liabilityon it would have been out of there freaking mind

I was very friendly with the PO and had he not kept the boat in his name and insurance until after it was hauled and blocked in my driveway it would have been imposable to have bought the boat


He was and older fellow the boat had gone to hell and none of the yards in the Whitestone area even wanted to haul the boat so i had to to do the temporary outboard and move it to glen cove to be placed on a truck

At which point i had to take the personal risk on the good bit of money i spent on refit until the boat would pass a legit hauled out survey

After the survey it was not much problem until sandy this year as it destroyed my sailing area and there gun-shy right now

If a dirty bottom slows you down what do you think it does to your boat
