    Just a reminder to shop around. I got quotes this week where the differential for very similar coverage was nearly 500%--much more of a spread that we typically find in other consumer lines. My low quote was through BoatUS and the highest was Progressive. Don't forget to insure personal items like rods and reels. None of the policies I had bid included those in the base rate.

    I have had to deal with this before.There is a place called "Boat Insurance" that is a great place too if you want to buy local.

    Don't forget to check with the company that provides your homeowners policy. You might get a good deal. The age of the boat makes a big difference in how easy it is to get. The newer, the better.

    When I had to insure my Clack, I called USAA, which is open to military, and has the best rates around. Guess what? They sent me to Flo at Progressive. They may have different rates for USAA members than they do for the civilians, but mine was very reasonable!
