    Default Rogers boats and insurance

    Does anyone know what happened to Rogers Custom Boats formerly in Bellflower,Calif? I heard Roger retired about 8 years ago.Did he sell the molds to someone;is anyone carring on the legacy he left making fast well made jets?? Regarding boat insurance,what insurance companies do you Westcoasters use?? I left Liberty Mutual to save a a hefty sum on all my insurance now I find out that my current carrier,Nationwide doesent want to touch anything that goes over 50mph and neither does Progressive,Wozencraft etc etc!! Any suggestions??

    AAA carried my Rogers and i was truthful about the power, full coverage was in the neighborhood of $360 per year.

    AAA coveres my rogers aswell. unfortunatly they have a new policy and do not cover boats older than 20 or is it 25 years.

    advantage boats has the 18' bonneville mold and i believe one other but not sure. i heard the 19' TR mold is being held and not used by a private party. Roger has since retired from the boat manufacturing buisness and now resides in lake havasu. indeed he did leave quite a legacy with his well designed hulls. and to imagine many of them are still not only on the water but even being raced with success. a true testament of a great hull. not to mention its beautiful looks.

    AAA worked for me but i had to lie a little on the speed but still close to the truth and the best thing is if you do full coverage im pretty sure you get some kind of road side assistance since your insureing your trailer or at least it worked for me since they came and unlocked my doors the other day when my keys were in the ignition

    They don't want you to touch them when they're hot! Sorry, couldn't resist. I have a '83 Advantage with the Bonneville style hull. As far as I know, Advantage still has that mold and can make a new one.
    AAA has covered mine for 5 years. Not sure if they know how fast it goes.....

    Well, Edog i dont know for certain, but im willing to bet that AAA did not feel anything on my boat, because they did not even look at the boat, but i told them that it had bessett headers, and i had no problem. but then again, this vas a few years ago, i guess from posts above that alot has changed since then!

    again, i dont think AAA will insure your boat because of thier new policy but its worth looking into. back a few years they did not have concerns about the over transom headers as i actually trailered my boat to the AAA office and had them take pictures. i doubt the agent realized he was taking pictures of a 502 BBC instead of a 454, but the aluminum heads and basset headers must have showed him it went over 35 MPH. when he asked me what the HP rating it was, i said i dont know, i dont need to dyno my motors to make em run right and i dont really care to spend big money for a peice of paper with a bunch of numbers on it. he laughed which led me to believe he knew what i was talking about. i did not lie about anything and he didnt have any issues about covering me. i would suggest you be truethfull with whichever agency you go to. a small lie can be the fine line bewtween reimbersment or cancelation when the unfortunate occurs. and yes they do and will investigate whenever you file a claim.

    as for advantage and thier 18' "bonneville style" boats, they are a good boat hull. a friend is running one with a ford and gets decent numbers from it and it handles nice. his only complaint is the berkeley JE pump that advantage decided to install instead of the JG/JC style pumps.
    i have also heard that the 19' TR (probably a mold made from an old hull) is possibly being layed up in mexico. allthough i havnt seen any yet.

    Yeah, the 19 mold in Mexico is popped from an old hull, and is not Rogers old mold.
    The guy he sold the molds to, the 18 flat deck, the 19TR, the 20 bonneville TR and the 21 cruiser are just sitting, not being used. Don't know what the guy's waiting for or why he would buy them if he had no plans to build some parts out of them. He bought them dirt cheap though, much cheaper than the price Roger first offerd everything to me for...I'd a bought it all too for the price he paid.

    Advantage bought the 18 bubble like Vic said and the Dragstar back in the day, and there was a deal between Roger and Harry to share the 20TR mold back and forth when needed. I loaded them on the trailer when they went to Advantage...sad, sad day. 'Course I got to see them agaig when I went to work for Harry, but it wasn't the same, nor were the boats.

    A mold will last forever if it's stored right.

    By the way, Advantage got it's start with molds rescued from a land fill.
