Default Cat Insurance????

Where can you find insurance for cats? In NJ? PA? Is it hard to find anywhere now...especially in the Northeast or is it just so costly that most can't afford it? Is it just bad on cats or on other offshore performance boats too? What have your personal experiences with this issue been?

It is extra bad on cats. PM OSO members Tantrum and Berns29scarab. They just conquered the insurance giant.

You can try Sy Goldberg @ Total Dollar, Bob Lewellyn @ WordlWide and i've heard in some instances depending what your looking to insure State Farm as well as Allstate. I have a few friends down South that are insured thru Allstate. GOOD LUCK !!

All good people and good companies. I have been told NO by all of them.

Traffic violations: NONE
Drugs: NO
Smoker: NO
Drinker: NO
Accidents: NONE

They will inusre everything else I have but not a CAT.

These things may become extinct. Unless you can write a check they cannot be financed.

everyone told me know on my new eliminator. I called a company call american national property and casualty and at first they said no, than they asked if my credit was good and if I would move my house and car to them. I said sure as long as you will insure my cat. I got my new 26 daytona insured for $720 a year with $1000 detuctible. The agents phone number is 918-492-9898, jay martin.

Sy's the man - he got me insured on my (new to me) 30 Motion. It actually was not that much more expensive than my 29 Fountain. No problems financing the cat either...

Surprised World Wide wouldn't insure it. Mine is with them and I know others that are.

State Farm did mine when I had stock power in it.

Arneson 8's and superchargers are like huge red flags and usually scare them away.
