Bils,
I know the feeling, get use to it. We hve our boat insured with progressive they were the cheapest at the time and cover you fifty miles offshore any where in the U.S.

Hope this helps

I was charged a 1% Hurricaine fee because I have a Florida mailing address even though the boat has never been to Florida. Most companies are not writng new policies on smaller boats.

Bils,

I, too, live in Tampa, and you are not joking about insurance. We had Progressive (they were the cheapest at the time) and switched to USAA (since they were the cheapest when we bought a house.) Progressive was great- I might switch car insurance back over to them and get a quote on the boat again. I also have heard good things from other boat owners about their dealings with Progressive on claims- which is important during hurricane season.
