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 !
Too bad anyone has to survey a Commander or Lancer hull, for crying out loud, it should take ten minutes. Of course once there, I'm sure there will be meters, pocket knives, ice picks, crawling about, looking for fingerprints on the chrome. I know, some of the survey work is for safety, and it is a needed profession, but there won't be a hull problem with these boats unless they went through a hurricane and suffered repairs that were not well done.
Hagerty is good, and they have supported us in our events at Huron due to my contact with Carla. I served with Frank (Hagerty) on the ACBS board many years ago, so I do have a warm and cozy feeling when their name comes up. I anticipate seeing them in Bay Harbor too.
On my own boats, having had them insured in the past with Hagerty, when I transitioned to a different insurance program years ago, I was able to get a very good rate through my State Farm carrier, if I took and passed a boating safety class which I did, and I think they gave me a very nice rate due to the fact that all my other insurance was with them. My main concern is liability. If I lose the boat,yes indeed, that's a loss, but again, with a Commander or Lancer, both built with the same resin and glass, there is so much more assurance than what I used to own, a 35' wood Sea Skiff with a half inch of wet marine plywood between me and the bottom of the lake.
You might be surprised to see if your friendly home owner insurance guy might be able to give you some help. Hagerty supports our boating hobby, and naturally they should also be considered. Hey I can give you a survey from here, you pass just based upon the photos I've seen.
