Default Progressive is Mediocre

My insurance premium is coming due again, which means that i've owned the boat now for one year. hooray. but anyways, i dont want to stay with Progressive, so...

does anyone out there have suggestions for good, cheap boat insurance?
or are there any agents on OSO that i could give some business?

Let me know... thanks

Really not having any problems... never had to make a claim. I think they are too expensive ($930/yr for a 24ft Fountain) and i have heard bad things.

Plus due to some problems with getting my mail, and me just being lazy... my policy just lapsed this morning... so i figured i would look for something else

I have only had 1 claim on my Progressive policy which was handled promptly. Premium went up the next year, but the following year it went back down because only one claim in 4 years. Your premium sounds about right in line with mine.

I get all my billing/correspondence online from their website, which works well.

Let us know if you beat their price.

I got screwed by Progressive. I had a raccoon get into the boat over the winter. Pissed, crapped all over the place. Also shreded the seats, cushons and headliner in the cabin. Just trashed it. Progressive said sorry, because of a little exclusion, "if other than by rodent, vermon or animal". They said no to the claim. I guess at 300 bucks a year you get what you pay for. Read the fine print.

I have had some customers that have had "Progressive" nightmares when a big claim is needed.

I had Progressive on my Bullet for the last two years. Their prices are competitive and didn't increase at all. I just just my renewal for next year...(which I won't need because I sold the boat) and it stayed the same price.

You can't say that for Markel, they have everyone by the balls and take advantage of it

I just settled my totaled truck with Progressive. No problems at all, and they kept me informed every step of the way.
