I disagree, <--was under 35 and purchased a smaller cat and am insured with State Farm
Is it cheap, NOPE!, but it is a lot less then some others!
I feel it helps to have everything with one company, and a MUST to include an Umbrella policy that includes it all!
Kept the boat under 100mph for just that reason.
Guessing by his request that he is not wanting a 35+ 120mph cat to start off with. Actually glad to hear that as well since we have all heard of newly aquired high powered boats getting into some sort of trouble.
This Cat is trying to keep up with the Big Dogs

The cats discussed here are mostly outboard. 30 Motion and Spectres are great hulls with outboards. The I/O versions are not the best setup and will porpoise a lot. Most good cats (true tunnel and light weight) under 32 feet are better with outboards. The 32 Skater with I/O power is as good as it gets. You might want to check out Eliminator hulls as well. Good lake boats. There are some good deals on 28-33' Daytonas.
Honestly for the amount i'd use the boat in a season and based on you're guys ballparks of insurance on a cat I don't even think it would be worth it. I've had cars that I spend over 1k a year on insurance for and put less than 400 miles on in a year. stuff like that burns my ass, but I realize thats how ins companies make their money.
Maybe it's time to start looking into a 30' or so V hull
another person that hates his money LOL
