This guy and his family have been around for 300 + years. I understand they made a killing in the late 1700s with voyaguer groups coming through Grand Portage.
I understand that they did really well up until the early 1900s, since no one could ever prove what they lost in the canoeing mishaps, he also had a 90 day limit on reporting the loss and the voyaguers never seemed to get back in time to file the claim.
He would pay a claim every now and then just so no one could ever say never paid.
When cameras started be used he had a little bit of a problem with clains until he added the "non related witness clause". If you filed a claim, a person not part of your party had to certify that he saw the accident. This pretty much took care of paying out many claims.
