First, I'm glad no one was killed (as I understand it from this thread).

Second, this isn't going to be good at all.

Prediction:

Poker runs will be expressly excluded in all marine insurer's coverage by 2007.

I think if you consider how many hundreds of boats participate in poker runs annually, the incident rate is VERY low. It's the hurricanes that cause major havoc with the insurance companies, not poker runs.
