    I don't know but it might help someone who knows the HP rating of your hull type if they knew what hull it is.

    You are way past your limit with a blower! Good luck! Most companies won't insure jet boats in ca. with over the transom headers. with a blower. FORGET IT!

    Im in NC and we have no laws for OT headers just have to have water running in them? I know they will insur this type of boat but only if the engine does not have more HP than the rating.
    These #[email protected]*** might not even know what a blower is?

    LOL, Just keep in mind ins. adjusters are ALWAYS looking for a reason to deny a claim!So if you are going to insure it. Make sure they have a pic and know what it is. otherwise you are taking a big chance if anything ever happens.

    Has nothing to do with any laws. Instead, it is a fact that most insurance companies avoid the risk associated with OT headers(burns and plastic surgeons are expensive) and high horsepower and uncovered engines.

    If there is a "U.S. Coast Guard Capacity Information" plate inside the boat, it may list the max rated horsepower. My current boat has no such plate and my previous did, althought the HP rating was blacked out(due, I always assumed, to the fact it was an inboard and those rating were for outboards).

    You might PM "Boatcop" here on the boards. This question is right up his alley.

    Orange peel Thats a sweet looking Haskell , ive owned one !, Re insurance I gotta a hunch no matter where ya go you might get by with the headers but the blower will likely be the deal breaker Just my OP (Ive been involved in an Ins related business since 86") IF you were in Ca ,AZ or NEV (or could other states now) you could go to www.performanceboatinsure.com Al was going to write my Schiada flat and my Blown Eliminator for a very reasonable $ Tom

    My 1973 sleek craft monteray actually has a HP rating right on the coast guard tag that lists the rest of the capacities. I was sooo confused when I saw that. First time I have seen a HP capacity on an inboard boat. As far as I know the MFG does not have to put a HP capacity on inboard boats, or even on OB boats over 21 feet. I know that my dads taylor SS and cobrajet didn`t list a HP capacity, and non of the stern drive boats that I have ever been in did.
