That makes a lot of sense they let a bass boat go 90 and a HP offshore boat only 75.

I saw that too, but the bourbon they drink while fishing helps settle the nerves, which makes them calmer drivers.

I anyone else trying to get quotes right now. DAYUM!!! I've been waiting (and badgering!) my current insurance company, among others, for a quote for over a week now! So far, I've gotten quotes from 3 or 4 companies. Most are in the 4k range...

I just got new insurance a month ago. State Farm had the best rates for me this time. The progressive agent i talked to said they couldn't insure my boat because of the thru-hull exhaust.

A little off topic but still about insane insurance rates. Way back in time when the ZX-10 and then the ZX-11 hit the streets, a couple of motor cycle mags had articles about the cost of insurance for an under 21 new rider being about $6k per year, the price of the bike at that time was about $5800 Anyone else remember this?
