Watch out

If your boat has stress cracks it should never enter the water.. What my insurance company says

Why bother with insurance

What people call stress cracks aren't really stress cracks, they're just gell crazing. There's nothing really wrong with the fibre glass underneath and thus nothing wrong with the integrity of the hull!!!

They said boat had hard life not fit for the water due to the hull being weak from stress,, I sent them pic before i even insured the thing.

How does racing insurance work? Is there a company that insures whilst your in a race?

Doesn't part of your entry fee/license give you race insurance?
just 3rd party or somethin though,
I found a marine insurance company a while back and put in details of boat etc, for a P21 with xr2, on trailer, with all personal items it came to £30 a month!! Seems cheap to me?

Race license gives you 3rd party coverage only while racing.
Not while out testing, or even while sitting on your front drive.
