That's kind of like having your boat fast and reliable!!

Joking aside, I've always had good dealings with Progressive. I also know my agent pretty well and she goes the extra mile on a lot of things.

The guys at Worldwide are great. They have been a help since I am not 25 yet. That seems to be the magic number. They can help and have helped us for the past 12 years or so.

I currently have State Farm wich is half of what I was paying through Progressive, the only problem was they wouldn't insure me until I insured my house and truck through them.

I spent all day leaving messages for Bob @ Worldwide, even left all of my personal info with his girl and waited for a quote all day......... nothing, not even a call. So there sits my brand new boat in the driveway uninsured, only days after my buddy's 40 Skater burned to the ground and surrounded by lightning storms. I went to progressive online and got a quote and signed up. Cant risk it. Hey Bob, put my application for a quote in the shredder please. Worst part is I probably paid too much.

Let us know if you beat their price.
Premium seems high to me. I was paying $425 a year for a 26' Scarab w/ 502. Less than half what your premium is through my State Farm agent.

I have been heavily pursuing a Cig Bullet as my next purchase. My annual premium will be about $200 less than what you are paying for a single engine 24' boat.

I was paying $1014/year with Progressive for my Bullet with 470 HP engines
I can't talk about it right now, it's being handled by the Postal Inspector. Those guys don't mess around!
