Default Boat insurance - help!

I seem to be paying ridiculous premiums with Progressive to insure my 1978 35' Cigarette Mistress and my 1973 20' Cigarette . . . and I only have agreed value coverage of $25k per boat, and maximum coverage limits on the liability end.

I'm a young guy and I own two old, fast boats. What else is out there for me? Thanks in advance.

Harry

Sy looks like a great choice, but I don't meet his requirements for a number of reasons. Both boats are over 10 years old, one boat is under 26' feet and current values in current status of assembly are less than $50k each.

I would think Progressive would be cheaper than a HP Company,that specializes in boats.

I'm only 23, thats the biggest problem, my record is clean for about four years now, the Mistress is insured with twin 454/370's and the 20' with a single 500 I think . . . .

Sy PM'd me, so I'll give him a call and see what he thinks.
