Don't know if it still applies but years ago there used to be a speedboat clause and cost increase if you used you inflatable faster than 17knots kept below that speed Nd it was significantly cheaper.

Sounds like the clause that craft insure have in place but they state 23 knots, sounds like each insurance company have different criteria to meet individual policy requirements

I'm getting quoted around the same for 25hp, from previous threads I've read I think most people are paying around 50 minimum

That sounds like the same policy I'm tempted to get, I was just not 100% sure if the maximum listed speed of 22 knots would cover me, although its obviously ok for your set up (almost same size sib and same HP outboard)

Also had a suite from towegate for 60 which includes towing inflatables, but dosent cover theft
