Maybe with the Hughes you should have spent $700 on a surveyor so that he could tell you you have a 40+ year old boat in less than perfect condition. It would have only increased your purchase price by 70 000%

Re: The $1 Dollar Boat

A $1 boat?

I bet you'll have more than double that into it by the time you're done.

Re: The $1 Dollar Boat

Have you got a place to work on it where they won't be requiring survey/insurance? I couldn't even leave my old boat in the boatyard without insurance, and I never found a place that would insure without a survey.

Re: The $1 Dollar Boat

If for whatever reason your insurance company doesn't accept the PO's survey, here the minimum standards an insurance surveyor should be inspecting to. I sincerely doubt it will cost $100k to bring your boat up to these standards.

Re: The $1 Dollar Boat

For this and the last project boat I needed $2 m liability for anywhere I go. All that has been required is current photos. I have kept the replacement values low but reasonable. $350 and now $460 premiums.

You and a few other highly experienced internet sailors would either:
1) Piss in your panties.
2) Claim it wasn't true.

I'll pass. I have a few things to do.

This is a great thread. Let it live sans tacking.

I'm a bit surprised that you black souls have not managed to dampen the spirits of North Channel Sailor. After all, you folks bring "experience on a professional level".

This is incorrect. Insurance companies base their premiums on claims statistics. I deal with all of them and doubt more than a handful even know TP1332 exists.

The hysterical laughter you hear as you drive a way in your"new" boat ..... is the seller.
