What are we considering a good price? I'm paying £260 for fully comp on a P21 with 200HP including road cover. I had to value it in three seperate chunks, Boat , engine and trailer. Total came to £4,800. I had trouble finding a company that would cover it, and some were asking for a survey by a chartered surveyor

Not all they wont cover the Midas as it's too Quick if your honest, If you are dishonest and lie about the speed your get cover but invalidate the policy if they find out!! & it's Design speed.

I did have a similar problem but I spoke directly to clive carter and he went out and found me an insurance policy that would do the job.

But I suppose your top speed is a bit more than mine tho'. How fast you telling them?

Funny thing is it's based on Design speed so you could have a 40 foot skater with a 4hp outboard and it's too quick in theory Not .....
