The pool of car and motorcycle driver is much greater than cats.

I think one solution is Tres Martin's driving school. One kid 21 years old went from a 29' V to a 36' Nortech. He couldn't get insurance anywhere. After he completed the school, Tres called his agent and he was reinstated.

LubeJobs I didn't ask him who the carrier is, but I'll call him tomorrow and post back here with the info.
Thank you!! I can afford the insurancee but will have to cut out fuel. At least if the boat sinks at the dock, I'm covered.

We were thinking of getting a cat, but when I read post like this I will just keep what I got, at least until I make more.

I was under the impression that there was only one company that would write a cat policy? and yes, if the same underwritter gets diff. information from two agents it can either prevent you from getting coverage all or at least they are going to work off which ever set of numbers is in their favor?
You might try a pm to Tantrum, he just went through the ins. process for his new cat, he has some insight at least?

Lube~ I feel your frustration! If you've had no claims and a clean slate, I just don't understand? That's such a big difference in premium that if I were you, I'd report that to the state insurance commisioner or at least bring that to Markel's attention. That's just wrong!

Bottom line, I wouldn't pay it...

The broker is very well known in the industry and proably insures many OSO members. He was actually suprised, He said he was thinking it would be between $15 to $16K with the power. The problem is the compay that use to insure me, no longer insures cats. We are at the mercy of 2 or 3 companies. They know they have us by the ****s! If I don't have insurance, God forbid something happens. As my girlfriend said, Insurance premium numbers are as big as our go fast egos!!

Don't they realize, The cat''s are not the problem! It's the stupid sailboats that get in front of us when we're flying. They should charge the heck out of the sailboaters!!! It's like the guy doing 40 MPH in the left lane when the rest of us are trying to do 90!!
