Re: 2018 Boat US Insurance ... underwriter is now Geico, %20 rate increase...
I now have a quote from IMIS for 4% less than last year's BoatUS premium. So instead of a 26% increase, I'd have a 4% decrease. The company is Markel America. Do you guys have any comments about their response to claims? According to the paperwork that I have, PO of my boat used them and made a few claims. They apparently paid up and didn't cancel him, so that seems like a good sign.
I also have been pursuing several specific questions with BoatUS about my risk category. A week ago they told me they'd get back to me early this week. No call, so I called back today and got a similar runaround. I'm about ready to pull the plug on them, just want to hear from you guys about Markel first.
