inflatable boat insurance?

Looking for 3rd party insurance for my 2.6mtr wetline with 5hp outboard.
Been onto craftinsure site as recommended and the quick quote facility gives me a price of 46 which is fine but the detail I have to input is minimal.
Is this usual?
Don't want to just go for a cheap price that doesn't cover my specifics??

Typical of most insurance companies online. I've found Craftinsure fine to deal with and will reply to emails and phone call queries. The final paperwork includes all the small-print.

Is that with or without VAT?

Yes they seem fine but surely to get an accurate quote you at least need to give size, type and power of the boat you have. They only seem to ask for the boat value and if you have had any previous claims??
They may ask for more when I hit buy policy?

I've insured several boats with crafinsure over the last 10 years & they are fine I have unfortunately had to claim twice.Once for equipment stored in a static caravan over winter which caught fire lost about 6k worth of nav gear, canopy & lifejackets etc I never expected them to pay out but they paid in full without quibble then I had storm damage to a screen & canopy totalling around 5k & again they paid without quibble

I'd highly recommend them to anyone for any value boat
