You better double check and make sure they know this boat is a cat, cuz I tried to insure my 26 cat w/t 2.4's, and in the book they had of state farm policies, they had pictures of cat hull's and tunnel hulls and stamped on the picture in the hull type section it clealy said "not insurable thru state farm".
Anyway I go thru allstate on my advantage for $1500 p year, a bit expensive, but if you ever need to use your insurance allstate is great at paying the bill immediately with no adjustor coming out. I had boat us for $700 on the advantage when I was signing the purchace papers, then when the marina owner saw I had Boat US he told me how boat us will drag out your claim forever, pro-rate depreciation of your boat since new, and give you that percentage of what your parts cost. and recommended allstate as the best to deal with, the marina turns in an invoice, and they have a check in less than a week every time. Thats worth twice the cost to me so I switched immediately. Then baot us were total *******s about giving me my money back, and took several months. The marina told me of Boat US sending the parts to the marina that were used parts, then they require the marina to send them all of the old broken parts so they can re-use them afret they inspect them and clean them up, just like the junk used parts you get for your boat from BOAT US. They just seem like a big scam to me.
My friend at work confirmed this for me this summer. He has boat us insurance and he hit bottom and blew a drive last spring, boat us came out three times to inspect, then he didnt want thier used parts in his bravo drive, so of the $3300 in broken parts he had, after depreciation, he got a check for $1400 for parts two months after sending the invoice to them, then had to fight with them for two months more before they would cover the labor, he didnt get a check for the labor till october and this is how all thier claims are handled I hear. The marina says if he wasnt a friend of mine they tell people with boat us to go elsewhere, it's just not worth thier time. Word to the wise I guess.
