Insurance Question?

3 posts in this topic

I'm trying to get insurance for a boat that is rate for a max hp of 80, but I put an 85 on it. My insurance agent asked for the hull rating and I told them I wasn't sure. Will this be a problem? Will other agents overlook this or not need this info?

That is a tough one! If your agent does find you a policy you better make sure you read it to verify for yourself that you don't have a liability problem there.

Most insurance companies won't allow you to exceed the plate rating...even by the old 10% number.

TJ, you are in a tough spot. I spent many years selling boats and it is a question that came up many, many times. Even if you get insurance, should there ever be a claim the company will deny it if they ever find out the boat was over powered. If you were the one who mounted the motor you will be the one accept liability for creating what will be looked at as an unsafe condition. If a dealer mounted it then they will be on the hook for some or all of the liability. Since the rating plates are very specific in what the maximum HP allowed is you are not going to get any sympathy from an insurance company. I personally would not run a boat that was over the horsepower rating due to the fact that the liability and risk is just to great. grin.gif

    • Hey @rl_sd who had the meat on sale? Looks great btw
    • chicks maybe exploring what the beak is for
    •   You can also be a little creative with the leftover meat.  For example: The wife and I will whip up a spanish rice mixed in with the pork and make Enchiladas or heat the pork on the stove top, mix in some BBQ sauce and make quesadillas (the grandkids love them).   There's more to pulled pork than sandwiches.  
    • that is great!!!!   good for you guys!!!!
    • Your right rs_ld,  a full smoker is the way to go, leftovers can always be frozen and re heated..good eats.
    • 195 degrees on these butts. Like they say, if you are going to spend 9 hrs smoking 5# of meat, you just as well spend the same amount of time smoking 45#. The local grocery had these on sale so had a few friends take the offer to throw a roast on for them. Took two off early for slicing  Pulling the rest cost them each a beer though!
    • Very good stuff, kinda tasted like ribs with this recipe,  I'll keep at it til I find the right one!! Good luck moon lake!!
    • It will be interesting to see how the Warriors react in free agency.  Will they be able to keep the team together?  It seems like all these guys value winning above a paycheck so they might be willing to sign deals that will still allow the team flexibility to keep good role players around them.    
    • That's too bad.  The fish were ON FIRE up there.  I went out with my dad and uncle with our tiller walleye boat, and hardly a clue what we were doing, and we crushed them!  Ended up with 118 pounds of packaged salmon fillets.  I think I can honestly say it was the most fun fishing trip I've had in my life.  Here's my biggest of the trip, 25 pounds.    
    •   It's amazing to see a thoroughly talented team like Cleveland just get dissected like a back alley pick up team. I agree--GS will be THE team to beat for several more years if they keep their nucleus. I think we can make them sweat a little bit now, though, so that's pretty exciting for a change!
