Re: 10K$ boat --- Are Insurance and Survey REALLY mandatory?
I did not read through the whole thread yet but I would say that you dont need a survey for insurance through progressive. I set up a policy over the internet for my 1972 9k boat with no question of a survey. That being said, I did get one for myself. It helps to familiarize yourself with the boat and tell you every thing/system you have on the boat and what make,model, etc... for $450 it was way more than worth it.
