Hello 42 MTI;

I will make you a deal, lets put my 1350 HP Sterlings into it, put some big props on it and I will let you and Randy take it out and see what it does. Watching those videos with you and Randy in KW and seeing those big cats blow over in Quatar at 130 MPH got my attention.

BTW, sounds like MTI does not need me for bragging rights, a canopied boat (CRC) with 750 HP motors running in excess of 160 MPH is very impressive.

Damn, these speeds are faster than most have expereinced in a car, on a stable surface no less.

Thought - Could these quotes be documented by the insurance industry? Used against us in the future?

Can someone explain to me why some insurance companies just flat won't insure Cats? Even making it expensive would be attractive to most as long as it's available. I would think if they offered it they could make alot of money. Of course there are going to be accidents and claims as a result. But, 4-5 accidents vs. say 500 insured boats is a way better ratio compared to the hundreds maybe thousands of car, home, bike, fatalities or injuries they pay out on every year.

Wouldn't is seem more logical to ban motocycle insurance purely by the number of them out there coupled with the amount of deaths each year?

Just wondering. Seems like there's money to be made on their end.

Warbird;

I think you pretty well summed it up, I know we all like to brag about having a fast boat, but safety is the most important matter to all of us. I do not like seeing any boat accident because it makes the news and it gives the insurance people a reason to go up on our rates. I was at SOTW this year along with 42 MTI and others from E Dock, I can assure that accident did not have to happen, but it did and it left a lasting impression on me.

One last thing, I never claimed to know everything, if you read one of my first post, I asked the question, why do you want to go that fast in a boat without a canopy. JC Perf answered a canopy was not going to save you, I replied it would not hurt.

Hello Warbird;

No offense taken, lets all be safe out there then we can all go to the bar that evening after a day on the water and tell stories on each other, who has the fastest and baddest boat prettiest wife, girlfriend or mistress and generally have one good time.

Be honest with you, that is the biggest kick I get out of all this are the people I have met and all the BS that goes around at the bar in good fun after a day of boating (safe boating).

Btching about a guy that will run 178 is going to raise your insurance is weak. I guarantee you there is ten times the payout by insurance companies to slow azz boats that kill people because a drunk is running the boat, than are paid out base purely on the speed they run.
