I don't mind spending $500 a weekend on gas during the season... but $700 per month on boat insurance is getting a little crazy. I'm sure that a lot of you guys have the same problem.

I guess that I am just tired of paying all the BS fees that come with living in Florida. Taxes are 18K / year on my house and another 6K/year to insure it (flood ins.).... the list goes on.

So what are the alternate solutions????? Boat insurance is manditory in Florida, right??? or is it???... your thoughts?

....frustrated in Tampa....


Sorry for your frustrations. I can relate, I remember trying to find insurance myself, what a pain in the azz. Boat Insurance is NOT mandatory in FL, though I would not be without it. The only requirments might be if you keep it at a marina or if you have a loan on the boat, the lender will require it - but not the state. I'm with Worldwide, and you've already tried them, so I can't give you any help there. Good luck.

I agree with BMANAFORT. You may be able to eat the cost of the boat, but you're exposing yourself to huge liability if you injure someone. An umbrella won't cover you if the boat isn't insured.

looks like the boat that was on Ebay couple times in last month or 2. Would you take a 200 mph LIL Duece in trade that I got from a guy named Big Scotty last year or a ride in an Enzo for it?
