insurance

Just rang a call centre to arrange some insurance for another rib,
They guy on the other end of the phone is helpful but seems a bit dim,anyway he takes all the details and gives me the quote which seems a bit strong.
I express surprise at how much it is so he runs through the details again.......
''well its a five foot rib with a 90 horsepower yamaha on the back'', me ''no five metres not feet'' him,''oh lets try that then, ah that's cheaper now,its only
£132''
But they were actually prepared to insure a five foot long rib with a ninety horse engine !!!

Oh wow! I'd have gone out of my way to build a 5 foot rib and rig it with a 90, just to put a claim in!
