    I Purchased a used boat yesterday, and looking to insure it against damage. Don't need on water towing, will have Boat U.S. Just looking for insurance to cover boat if sinks or tree falls on it, etc. Thanks. :) It's just an old boat, nothing fancy. Should catch an eye,perch, or even a salmon...

    Both of mine are through Safeco. Had one claim (tree) with no issues.

    Hey Ralph
    It's just an old fiberglass boat...75 Johnson...electric choke. That's what Alan Johnson would say.
    Really it's a nice boat! Looks to be in nice shape.

    Congrats on being buoyant again.
    Look out perch.
    I'll stop by to sneak in a GPS tracker I mean to inspect. Go get them

    Same here. One claim no problem. Good rate and piece of mind. Roadside assistance and on water also plus boat coverage to damage.

    Have State Farm for everything. Had a total claim on my boat this year and they were excellent on the claim. No complaints. Congrats on the boat, very nice.

    Thanks guys.....I got the on water towing and trailer coverage through Tow boat U.S. since I've used them before and had great service. Didn't think their rate was terrible for the insurance coverage either on boat and contents so just went all at same place for a year. Might check around, but I'm covered at midnight until next September so I'm good to go! :)

    Your right Pete, I had that Johnson motor on my mind when I was typing. That's bad because I'm a real Alan JACKSON fan, seen a few of his concerts.
