Default Can't find insurance for an older performance boat

Who's writing policies on older performance boats anymore? Having a hard time finding coverage for an 86 Scarab we recently purchased.
So far, Progressive and Marcell are the only ones that will write for it. Progressive was liability only and Marcell was restricted to a few Midwest states, excluding Lake Michigan.
Anyone having better luck?

If the boat is above average condition in a formal survey Andy may be your man.

I'm going to suggest Fremont Insurance, they're based in Indiana. They've been very fair with me.

Check with State farm. They gave me the best price on my 88 fountain with a agreed upon value.

I also tried to get my older scarab cc insured. Everywhere I called wanted more than my 1250 hp formula.
