Re: 10K$ boat --- Are Insurance and Survey REALLY mandatory?

We have owned many boats and only ever got a survey on one (our Legend 37), and only because we had to finance $12,000 of the purchase of it and the lender required the survey. Otherwise I do my own...

Re: 10K$ boat --- Are Insurance and Survey REALLY mandatory?

I'm glad to hear that your philosophy is based on "being responsible for yourself".

So if we are both in an anchorage and a storm catches us both by surprise and your 10k boat drags anchor and...

Re: 10K$ boat --- Are Insurance and Survey REALLY mandatory?

Relative to a newer more expensive boat, a $10K boat naturally has increased risks of something going seriously wrong with rigging or hull that could end up in disabling or sinking the boat. Those...

Re: 10K$ boat --- Are Insurance and Survey REALLY mandatory?

The boat you buy for $10,000 will probably be needing lots of deferred maintenance tasks taken care of - do it now safely and conveniently or do it later expensivley and maybe hazardously. I think...

Not sure where you are located but in Seattle/Everett I used Safeco insurance... they did not require a survey based on the cost of the sailboat. I have the following for insurance:

Re: 10K$ boat --- Are Insurance and Survey REALLY mandatory?

As others have said, while it may not be an absolute requirement, you do need liability insurance. I can understand being callous about your health insurance (though I hope you don't expect to get...

Re: 10K$ boat --- Are Insurance and Survey REALLY mandatory?

I am not suggesting that the op not get insurance. I do find it odd that no marina that I have overnighted at on the Chesapeake has ever asked me if I was insured. I don't stay at marinas often but...

Re: 10K$ boat --- Are Insurance and Survey REALLY mandatory?

Liability insurance is relatively cheap, mine from Boat US is only $250 per year. My boats a 1974 so they did require a survey. Where you get murdered is on the comprehensive which you don't need on...

Re: 10K$ boat --- Are Insurance and Survey REALLY mandatory?

If you ever hope to spend a night in a marina, and there will come a time you need to, you'll need $300k in liability, so get it now.

About the survey, only the craziest person alive would buy a...

Hey,

You don't need a survey. You do need liability insurance. The insurance may not require a survey.

Re: 10K$ boat --- Are Insurance and Survey REALLY mandatory?

Re: 10K$ boat --- Are Insurance and Survey REALLY mandatory?

First of all, you don't have to have insurance and no, you don't have to get a survey.
That being said, if you do get insurance, and I think most sailnetters will tell you it is a good idea to have,...

There are Irwins in ports all over the world. Sure there are issues with Irwins, but often they are 'lack of maintenance' issues, more than design issues. Remember Irwin produced over 6000 boats! ...

Re: Boat Purchase Timing ??

You got it right here - as a long-time Toronto resident, boats come out in Sept/Oct, and sellers want the boat gone so they don't have to prep for the winter. Prices go back up in the spring.

Re: Boat Purchase Timing ??

This makes things a lot more clear. Most people live in a particular area, or want to sail in a particular area, so it makes sense to restrict your boat search.
