Re: Did I make a mistake in reporting a claim to BoatUS?

BoatUS is really decent to work with. However, you can retract your claim but it will not be like it never happened. It will still be on the record and because it is an accident they may require another survey when it is time to renew. This to be sure that the damages were fixed and still insurable. Bright side is you keep insurance but be prepared for a slightly higher premium next year.

You can work with BoatUS to keep it from being "salvage". I did on mne where I cvered the interior damage and they covered the hull damage. The following year they required a survey, and because I did not provide one - they dropped me.

Just be candid with them - they;ll do their best to work with you.
