I have mine through Voyager Marine Ins., underwritten by A.C.E. Agreed value. Something like $175 per year.

To me, this forum is about love of inboard boats. It is about the sharing of information and, on a good day, some humor. It is not about post count, brand of boat, or any other superfluous labels that lend themselves to a false sense of superiority. Please, respect one another, try to pass on accurate information, and keep your eye on the ball.

That's hilarious! I have only used Progressive, but I think when I gave them the make and model, it defaulted to the RTP engine. I'm curious if I had told them 350 HP, I would not have been able to get insured.

My policy was underwritten by Progressive a couple of years ago. I started hearing horror stories about coverage and asked Voyager to find me someone else. Saved $100 per year on my premium in the process. Have used A.C.E. before. They do just as well at taking my money as Progressive ever did.

I'll have to look into that. I think mine is around $400 a year based on agreed value also.

That might not be a bad price. My boat is 15 years old.

You're probably right, and my diminishing deductible is almost gone! Haha

I'm also under ACE (at the recomendation of Eastie a few years ago) and have been quite pleased. However, we also have an umbrella policy with AMFam and they have indicated that the umbrella only covers things that "they" have a policy on.

So, I asked for a "like for like" comparison to ACE. He can get close to the coverage but nowhere near the rate. He also indicated that ACE looks to provide coverage on areas that they don't even offer (like towing in the lake).

In the end, I may still just have to pay more with AMFAM just to allow the umbrella to have coverage. Kinda frustrating.....

Except for the PCM ZR-450 ("6.0L HO"), which has a PCM-specific cam, I believe all the 5.7L and 6.0L engines being used by the different marinizers all come from GM with the same long blocks. The difference in hp shouldnt be huge, as the only differences lie in the exhaust and ignition systems, and the tune that theyre running (air/fuel curves). I doubt youre going to see huge variations in hp like the #'s on the 5.7's in that chart would suggest.

The proof will be in the pudding PT... we'll line that new tug up against the local 196 6.0L and see what she's got. What prop came on that thing?
