With Boat US, I'm pretty sure they only sell cash value policies. Be aware that your coverage goes down every year for depreciation. I would hope that the cost of the policy also goes down every year because the possible payout is less (I wouldn't know because I didn't use them for my last boat)

On my last boat, I had an agreed value yacht policy for $30,000 boat / $5000 trailer for $550 / year. Policy cost me close to the same every year as the value they'd payout for a total loss was always $30,000/$5000.

Night time fishery unless long lining. The California fleet targets them, but they can't land in Oregon at this time.

this one ate a tuna bait, just a sardine floated out and down 80 ft

usually fresh squid is the ticket

daytime swords they fish deep
like 1000 ft   there's  a real good daytime sword video tutorial from an expert somewhere     

it's mostly about location and presentation in the video

Dave, what were you using for bait/rigging? There is a large population of swordfish off the Oregon coast and nobody targets them.

Dave,

With the deep drops you are setting up for and doing overnight trips, you might want to consider trying for swordfish.  There are a few guys that have been doing it off Florida and NC with pretty good success. I think you could get them at the shelf of VA and MD as well.  Key is fishing them deep at night and getting down to where they are and then waiting.


we had one this year    barely legal   we let it go   we've caught two   busted off some big ones with 80 lb too

I'm paying less, for more coverage through BoatUS. I have everything you have, with a little variance: 62k on the boat, 7k on the trailer, and 10k on contents. Sure I had to go through the process of having it appraised, but now it has been established as to actuall value. I think my premium $460 + or - a few dollars. The actual underwriter is Geicko

It appears I got lucky on insurance, through state farm my boat policy has passed the underwriters and is getting processed to get put on my monthly billing.  Boat hull insurance is $45,000, trailer $6,000, before the motor is in my possession (at the dealer)  I need to call them with the motor/serial number and get the motor added to policy.
Insured out to 50 miles off shore, so far no inspection required, just had to give them a copy of the title/registration and asked for 45k on the hull, and 6k on the trailer.  So far no questions asked, very smooth process.
Right at $500 per year once the motor is added.

Love the custom wrench! I used 5200 on mine, nasty process with that stuff, it is going to get on you, but it won't leak once it is set!
