WOW! that's unbelievable. I can't wait to see the numbers justifying such an increase. Who do they think they are, health care insurers?

Is there going to be any type of registry where you can check and see if a boat was listed as written off as a result of this? I forsee a lot of these boats getting trucked somewhere, a cheap repair and flogged off without mention of the issues.
Well any boat that has been totaled will have the title flagged as "salvage" but taking the boats to different states may wash that out, since titles are issued by the states.

I too am curious, particularly since this was a "named storm." I'd be willing to bet that many of the damaged/destroyed boats owners had policies that exclude payouts for damages suffered as a result of a named storm.

Youse guys should check out getting insurance from Lloyd's of London - maritime insurance is their basic game and their risk is distributed worldwide.

For a 1/3 increase it's worth checking out.

I, myself, personally intend to continue being outspoken and opinionated, intolerant of all fanatics, fools and ignoramuses, deeply suspicious of all those who have "found the answer" and on my bad days, downright rude.

I have heard that Lloyd's underwrites a lot of the marine insurers so they will take the hit.
