Don't insure it and be careful. Boat insurance unlike car insurance is not mandatory.

and when he hits your boat what are you going to say?

Sorry but saying that takes the biscuit, it is saying to people that dont bother. I have paid boat insurance but never needed to claim BUT insurance is required for club and opens.

If he can't afford his insurance how the hell is he going to afford the £grand repairs to other cats or monohulls.

Congrats on getting a 4.9 - great boats.  Sell a Topper seems the best idea.

its a real good idea to get insured.

 

its no where near as pricy as car insurance and cats dont turn fast.

 

they are probabally more prone to dammage thing due to poor mobillity and hish speen.

plus you cant race and go to opens ect.

Dont eat lunch. Thats what ive been doing lately, but thats not saving for boats that's saving for beer tokens. but its the same principle. and if you eat less you need less beer tokens too

on the serious side, get a job, much less effort than not eating.

On the insurance side, check how much 3rd party is with various companies. I can be much, much cheaper, though if you prang your own boat you won't get a penny.
