Looks like something similar for GEICO gobbling up Boat US. My Boat US rate for the last three years was just over $US2,700 but GEICO wants $US3,800. When I called up to asked about it they said it was due to a state wide increase. Friend in North Carolina got a decrease.

I am shopping around now.

Re: Geico vs Boat US Insurance

My insurance with boatus/Geico went down by 20%, so I'm a happy camper.

I did notice there is now an exclusion clause around abandoning. If you abandon: which means the act of voluntarily giving up, surrendering, deserting, or relinquishing property and all rights to its control with the intention of terminating ownership and without the intention of vesting ownership with any other person or entity.

I'm not sure if this refers to mooring it somewhere in Florida and leaving it there, or getting off the boat at sea because you're seasick.
