4500 must have been for hull and deck only, which is still light but reasonable. rigged/wet it is probaably around 10.

Come on people I know some of you are not that stupid.
If you don't think the speed of the boat has a huge impact on your insurance rate you are smoking crack. It's the main reason we only have 2 companies to chose from for cat insurance. You only need to ask an agent about a cat running over 120 mph. Doesn't matter what kind or value, just give them the speed.

An Insurance Company's Claims Due Factor In On Their Rates For Premiums As Does All Other Insurance Lines.
but if liability is capped at a certain amount, what difference dies it make how fast it goes. everyone says million dollar liability, i had a 300k cap on liability and ins was still unreasonable.

Your overlooking the other part of the insurance equation, probability of loss.High speed=high probablity of payout=high premium.

You can always tell a cat owner. They are informed.
Cats are the only way to go. I HATE V BOTTOMS.

Come on people I know some of you are not that stupid.
you just dont get it do you, no one on here with the exception of you isnt doubting the speeds. it's about the foolish statements that were said afterwards. you seem to think that because we don't agree with someone that we are stupid or jealous, whom is the sheep blindly following... I'm not pissed at anyone, is the first thing you need to grasp, but I sure can see an idiotic statement from an industry leader. If it smells like a duck, walks like a duck...well
I dont care if anyone agrees with me or not, but the general consensus on this thread is they do, so get it right sporto, no one is jealous, if anything more are shaking their heads that a man that has done such good things for the sport now has his foot in his mouth.
secondly you need to read better, I have stated in numerous posts that I dont feel that the rates are going to go up from an isolated incident... It is only one piece of the puzzle.
