We extend to you a cordial "WELCOME ABOARD !" Come on in, make yourself at home, we are a friendly group of enthusiasts, and we also appreciate the classic Chris Craft Roamer, Corsair, and Lancer boats too , as they are all on the same family tree and share much in common ! Just start by posting a note introducing yourself to the group, that's all it takes here (we don't ask for or retain any personal information here, because our intention is to just "have fun and share information".
We have a few boats ranging from 1962 to 2003. I have State Farm on the house and a 1980's boat, but they won't insure a boat from the 60's and were very expensive on the 2003 ski boat. We went with SkiSafe on that one. I don't know where their cut off point is on old boats they won't insure. Progressive will do stated value on older fiberglass boats and their rates seem very reasonable. I have no experience collecting for a loss, but have been told by my agent you better have support for the stated value amount. Bottom line is you have to price around because it doesn't seem to matter how good of customer you are with your insurance company, when it comes to old boats a lot of them aren't interested in the business and prices are all over the place.
Also, some companies like Progressive will raise you boat policy rates if you have a traffic violation, even if its your 1st one in 20 years and minor like a right turn violation. They check your driving record when you apply for coverage or make any change to your policy at a later date.
