Re: Novice Buyer Question: 1980 Tanzer 7.5M (25 foot)

My experience is in the USA and with smaller boats than your Fantasia.

I think insurance companies in the US are crooks in cahoots with politicians, but your experience in Canada disappoints me - I always envisioned Canadians to be more fair and reasonable than us Yanks. I can't think of a justification for requiring a survey for liability insurance. The probability of my boat harming another is far greater due to my error or negligence than the chance of my bare pole being toppled due to a rigging failure that a surveyor might have detected.

After reading your post, I triple-emphasize that a perspective boat owner should have an insurance quote before buying the boat. And I'll add that the buyer should have a survey done before finalizing the deal.

Jwing- insurance companies are stinkers- that's a universal truth
