G-force that totally blows. Give me a call at (978) 985-0639 when you get a chance about the stereo stuff.

Put your best foot forward!

I don't know if it matters but from what I understand Farmer's has changed the company who administered their boat claims.
Just after the change (@6 months ago) I had a claim that was handled swiftly with zero problems. I hope you have the same experience I had.

I am not a Farmer's agent, only a customer.

G-Force, sorry to hear that! But, if it makes you feel any better I had a claim with Farmer's Insurance back in May and they were great. It was basically a year old claim(I did the damage last year and didn't know it)and they still covered it. Then, come to find out, I never made my last payment last year and they still covered it. Now I pay in full early!!! The only downer is the stereo equipment. They probably won't cover that

Good luck.

Sorry to hear the bad news G!! I hope it all turns out ok..

Thats why I leave mine on the trailer in the front yard. If it starts to go down, I will see it as I go to work in the middle of the nite, then I will call in sick and go boating..

Hope to see you at LOTO this year G!! If you need a ride let me know!!

I hope Farmers comes through for you. My father had to sue them when they denied a claim after his house was burglarized. He finally won in court but it took five years.

I have farmers insurance & had my toy box burn up the day before I was to get my new boat. I had taken my old boat to the shop so it was not there. Farmers came out & we found out that we had not sent check in for renewal yet. Long story short they paid with not much problem. At one point I could see why some people go postal but all came out well.

AAGGHH!!! G-Force, that just sucks man. Is the other boat seaworthy as it sits? Shouldn't you sea trial it BEFORE you have it hauled all the way to LOTO???? Just a thought

There will be a LOT of people at LOTO with only two on board (like me!!!). You and a lady friend are welcome to ride along if you need, but your crazy crew will have to rent a pontoon boat!!!!!!
