I had BoatUS and was happy (granted I never had to use it) until I was prepping to take my boat out of the Chesapeake and to Florida. In researching that I found out about their "named storm" clause. Maybe it's changed now but a couple years ago if your boat was damaged in any named storm your deductable went through the roof. That's when I dropped them and went with my auto/home insurer...Allstate. Was cheaper then BoatUs and were no restrictions for travel and no named storm scam!

My previous boat was insured with USAA but they have stopped insuring boats and have an arrangement with Progressive. When I bought a new boat year before last, I went with Progressive mainly because it was easy. My boat was hit in a storm last summer while on its mooring with some minor gelcoat damage. The Progressive adjuster was excellent and I had a check within a week. I was impressed.

I had BOAT/US insurance and was pleased with what they had to offer. However, as a member of the US Power Squadron, I got a quote for the same coverage from the power squadron and wound up paying almost half for what I was paying for BOAT/US.

Yep - through USAA is how I ended up with Progressive. Have you had any issue with Agreed Value vs. Market Value with Progressive? I'll double check, but I am pretty sure my policy is clear about Agreed value. But I will certainly confirm.
