Seriously around here its like parking cars at a Ferrari dealer NOT to many cheep incidents
I carry a 100 Ton Master, with towing and sailing endorsements, I have yet to have an insurance company give me a break for my experience. Age of the boat seems to be more of a factor than operator experience.

And if marina location and the value of my neighbors boat is important, then give me a run down marina with people who are not so concerned about the value of their boat more than they are about the fun they had out on the water. A well weathered boat is more pleasing to my eyes than a shiny Clorox bottle with strings attached.
