i have a insurance question

8 posts in this topic

i was using my brother inlaws boat this weekend a lund tyee with a 135 merc on it.i launched it and made sure water was pumping and let it warm up for a few minutes before taking off.i took it easy for awhile then started to get it up on plane i didn't even get 1/2 mile out when it blew a rod threw the block so my question is what do you think his insurance will do about it?think it will cover it or will i have to start looking for a new motor for him cry oh and yes there was oil in the tank.i sure hope insurance will cover at least some of it i am pretty sure it has full coverage,he will be checking into it more tomorrow but this is really bothering me and am just curious to what we will be up against.thanks for any info......

Hate to be the bearer of bad news, but in most cases they won't cover a "blown engine".

Unless you can prove that you hit something or sucked something into the intake, you are probably out of luck frown

I would agree with Darren that you will have a hard time getting anything from your insurance unless you really had a different type policy. The only way they might have covered it would have been from damage done by another by vandels or something else.

Tough deal for sure but I don't believe it is your fault. Rods just don't go like that.

park it under a tree and then cut the tree down grin

That would be the only way to get it covered...sorry.

I agree with Harvey & Darren that unless there was vandalism or it was stolen, or a tree falling on it, Ins. will not cover it.

Agreed, insurance won't cover normal wear and tear on it. If you hit something then it would cover, but you have to prove all that.

I borrowed at 1850 sportfish with a 175 merc efi last year when we were really busy, on the second day it blew and I didn't get a dime from ins. It's only covered if you hit something. Needless to say the 3 days I needed it didn't pay for having to replace the motor.

    • So we support intelligence depts now?
    • You mean fake Bruce Springsteen.  The real one is a librul and the fake one didn't want to urinate on the bed of the real one.   I'm sure Trump wanted them to play "Born in the USA" like all the other politicians that have no clue what that song is about but like the chorus.  
    • I'm trying to wrap my head around this one. Obama truly is a bigger POS than I thought. Good, God this is bizarro world. By commuting the sentence of this freak show, it's like burning down all the intelligence depts. Why do we have laws? 
    • So Obama is mad at the Russians for hacking and Wikileaks for publishing the hacks yet he just Pardoned Chelsea Bradley Manning who stole secrets and gave them to Wikileaks   This is a real WTF moment.
    • You failed to post the very next part of that very article:     You never patted Obama on the back for any of that oddly enough.    http://www.reuters.com/article/cbusiness-us-gm-tech-center-renovation-idCAKBN0NZ19920150514   So either congratulate both or congratulate neither.
    • Because you are banking on not having to pay it back in your lifetime and are perfectly fine with passing that debt down to future generations which allows you to live a better lifestyle at their expense.  Some of us don't think it'e ethical to pass debt onto generations who will have no say in the process.
    • Buddies from Michigan, MN, ND and WY got here Sunday, started hunting yesterday. Yesterday coulda gone better and coulda gone worse. We had 2 spots in a marsh that we were debating on setting up. Chose spot B. Had we chose spot A, we woulda been absolutely covered up in birds. There was about 1500 pins, teal and a few wigeon sitting there when we came by. at least we shot a couple nice bwt. Total take was 17. One drake bwt was already in the freezer when the pic was taken.    Day 2 was a diver hunt. Mainly had redheads come in, with one nice flock of scaup that we dropped 7 drakes out of. Had 3 flocks of buffies buzz the edge of the longlines but not commit to
