I had great luck with Sy. Ken Collier is a great guy to deal with also. I just bought his old boat from him and will be insuring it thru his Company. He is a first class gentleman to deal with

be careful and don't fudge the facts on boat / traler or truck. When it comes time to get paid they go over everything with fine tooth comb.

Allstate seems to be out of touch with performance boats, so I'm wondering who else might do a reasonable agreed value policy on and old boat with recent survey...???

Remember a 7.4 454 circa 1987 only put out 330 HP. What power is in the boat now? If you don't owe money on it why bother with insurance? The coverage will suck and after a few years the premiums will add up to more than the boat is worth by then!

Sean,

Call Michelle 732-892-8826 Campasaino Ins (sp?) they do my 85' Mistress for valued at 50K with 'stock' 454s for @$1500 ... not 100% sure if they write NY, but it's worth a phone call

I dont owe anything on the boat, but feel that i need liability at a minimum.

i also just spent 60K repowering it with 496HOs and XR drives...so if somthing happens to it, I'd like to get most of my investment back...

Bob Leuwellen at Worldwide was going to insure an older boat I was looking at with similar power no problem. He insured my current ride. Good guy...give him a call.
