What kind of power info do you guys disclose to your Agents?? I know I have had a problem in the past trying to sell them that my aluminum headed over transom tunnel is just 330 HP, and if they would insure me, it was like $900 per year!
from what I hear that was not a bad price too! lol

16' Mantra Tunnel
454 BBC told them 350hp
Over transom headers
$10k coverage

My full coverage through Farm Bureau is $420 a year and I'm only 27 years old

The only details they asked is HIN, length, headers, horsepower, year, how much to cover it for.

this actually brings up a good point...Todd (TRG), lets say you did not have a bigger HP motor and you were more in the range of 500 HP, would you be able to insure your boat?

I could have swore I once heard somebody say that 19' daytona style hulls were impossible to insure regardless of thier HP because they were considered "unsafe" by insurance companies.

This question is really for anybody with a cat/daytona style hull.

Thanks!

Guess they look atthe free board of the boat, pipes and look for an engine cover. Theywouldn't touch my Bahner. Said no way, and refunded my 6 month payment!!! But then again, i am in Cali!!

If its a daycruiser style jet, they will look twice, if its a lil hot rod, they will say no twice!! I thinkit just depends on who the agent is, and who is reviewing it further up the chain!! Maybe I will try again!!

State Farm (Gene Bostic) here in Yuma, Az insured my '84 winger for $15k plus $3k for the trailer. I told them 400hp and they saw the OT headers... Boat type is a Ski/Runabout. I believe its $640 a year. My main deal is if it ever sank, I could get back into a dope hull at the very least.

They were skeptical about my headers at first, but I kinda had a loophole. When I had my Kachina, it was insured through them as well per the previous owner. I took the insurance slip in and they copied it over, I emailed a picture directly from my phone just for them to have on file and they accepted it all. When they threw a fit about the headers on my winger, they pulled up my old policy and picture... Well, it was saturday at 4pm and they wanted out of the office, so I guess I got lucky and they passed it on through!

i have tried wozencraft, markel, state farm, stacy @ PB ins. and a hand full of other broker type companies. all of them told me they could insure my boat, but when it came down to it - none of them could. all i asked for was fire and theft and i don't mind paying a premium because of the "high risk" factor - as long as it's within reason. i have included a pic of my boat. if there are any agents out there that are interested in insuring it, send me a pm. thanks, jeff----sorry for the thread jack

That was good Todd :D:D. Do what I, do burn them. no paper trail ;). Try Terheggen and Malone Ins, Services. I have insured all my boats with them, through out the years. I am not 100% honest with HP Level. But they also no, its no stock 400HP deal. They have pictures. They are located in Bellflower, Ca. Cant find # here at work.

Good idea, mine go straight to the paper shredder, especially my last bill from GS.
