Gosh! I guess the secret's out that they've both moved to a tiny island in the Pacific and that they're actually just the customer of an agent! But hey, I'm not the one with "Marine Service Provider"...

Re: I want to buy an insurance

Just the kind of empty response one would expect from a "provider" that has shown little discretion in these forums thus far. I don't suppose that you'd like to indicate the name...

Re: I want to buy an insurance

If any of the contents of this post reflects reality, the "provider" in question has just broken about a dozen disclosure laws and has opened themselves up for a potential libel suit.

Re: Boat as an investment?

I'd wager that parts for popular mass-produced boats may be a bit less expensive and certainly easier to find than for one-offs, thus somewhat lowering maintenance time and cost. In terms of holding...

Re: The future of batteries, solar, and electric motors....

Correct, but LiFePO4 has only (roughly) half the energy density of Lithium-ion.



Let's look at some examples, taking a ~400 a/h bank @ 48v. For consistency's sake, we'll consider only top-tier...

Re: Americas's Cup settles Mono vs Cat once and for all?

Classics, be they boats or cars have an aesthetic all their own. As an analogy, I love my collection of 19th century pocket watches and carry one on a daily basis, right along with my Samsung S8.

Re: I want to buy an insurance

rwidman, the OPs statements are forthright and mirror my own experience. Your accusations are spurious and inaccurate. Try to see things from outside your narrow perspective for a change.

Re: I want to buy an insurance

Thanks for the link, atoll. They are the first to actually respond with a quote; ~US$600 for 300k liability. Not completely out of reach, but a bit steep.
