Nice sell! I know you had it for sale for a while. Happy for you. I saw it in Hot Boat and you had a nice one. What's next Semper Fi ?

I really don't think that many finance companies would let that slide. Just imagine if your garage burned down. Was it Sean Bishop that had a little mishap like that?? Finance companies want to make sure their a$$ is covered.
As far as the 10% thing goes it seems a little steep. Just imagine if you were insuring a million dollar MTI or Skater with ins premiums at 20K-25K or more per year. That 10% would frost me a bit. That $2500 is at least a one ot two day gas tab
Besides after owning a boat I would think that you were used to getting stuck in your a$$. Everything marine related is off the wall

No penalty with pro rate cancel vs. 10% (usually) penalty with short rate cancel.
