By the way, it appears you live in a hurricane zone yourself, is that correct?
Don't be silly. Compare universal healthcare for everyone to insurance on a boat for the playtime of the few. Surely you have a better analogy.

Yes I guess the Chessie can be a hurricane zone. However I am not bitching about my raise in insurance. I just don't want to be assessed for someone living in Louisiana

Lousiana is no stranger to hurricanes. By quick glance, most decades had between 5 and 6, with 2000-2009 having 7. I giggle to hear the global warming lemmings line up at all weather stories. Yes, the planet is warming. Yes, it has been warming ever since glaciers covered the planet. No, not every hurricane is a new concept. There were plenty before aerosol and combustion engines were invented.

Bottom line with insurance in the Southeast is the topography is so low, there is generally no where to hide and losses are greater on average. Therefore, premiums are higher on average. However, shop around, you can probably do marginally better.

Re: 700% increase in Insurance!

BoatUS is one of the most expensive insurance companies for boats in the U.S. if you are in the Southeast. Just shop for better rates and drop them like many other boaters have done. They are great if the boat sits on a trailer in your back yard in Colorado. Don't just accept these kinds of rates because you moved to Louisiana. We dropped them 12 years ago when they started these ridiculous rate increases. We have been based out of south Florida for about 12 years and cruised all over the Bahamas, where we are now, and the Caribbean. Walk the local docks and ask owners who they use. Chuck

Re: 700% increase in Insurance!

We survived "Katrina" in the Oak Harbor Marina, with only cosmetic damage and no water in the interior. We provided Allstate with photos before and after, showing how we prepared and the result. 40 boats on our pier, 3 left floating. They could not have cared less, even though in preparing properly we were attempting to protect their investment and the photos proved it. These jerks are as cold as frozen fish.
