Re: My Horror Story

Excellent, now go get a personal liability umbrella policy that will cover you when you are on the water. No need to have the boat involved.

Re: My Horror Story

Geico are criminals. Find a local agent.

The catch may be that umbrella policies want you to have primary coverage for the activity, but shop it. If they don't exclude marine activity, you might be set, without needing a marine policy. That's why you need a good agent.

Re: My Horror Story

I was able to get full coverage insurance for my boat, coastal out to 75 miles, for less than $400 per year...no survey... (My local agent). My boat isn't any smaller than yours (26').

Re: My Horror Story

This insurance issue is really getting tiresome! Of all the advice and help Harbor could use the constant ragging on one issue is getting old! He's learning his lessons the hard way..THE WAY men and boys learn.

Re: My Horror Story

I too think the length of this thread has grown past its use. I thank you all for your support as well as your criticisms. I will post a new thread detailing my engine report and solution next week. Lets put this one to bed.

OK, but I learned about diesels "Running away" from your post and I hope you'll get back to me about caves on Man o War.

Re: My Horror Story

I don't find anything sailing related, insurance included, to be tiresome. Repetitious perhaps, but I'm not going to give a second thought to how to stop that. Show me anyone who doesn't live in that glass house.
