Sib insurance

Tying to insure my sib with Craft insure, one of the policy agreements asks"maximum designed speed of the boat"

Basically this policy will cover me "if" the designed speed doesn't exceed 23 knotts/25mph

zodiac futura mk2 fastroller + 25hp outboard, as it's not actually a boat as such, there is no maximum designed speed, although I expect it's around 25mph...... Anyone know if this policy is suitable?

I can tell you that the zodiac goes bang on 25mph when it's flat calm

I took out a policy with craft insure last month. Ring them, they are more than helpful but when I spoke to them they did mention that to come under the 'small boat' catorgery it cannot exceed 25knots.

I think I will ring them tomorrow, It's unlikely I'd ever claim anyway, all I really want is to cover third party liability but obviously I don't wanna pay the policy fee if I'm not 100% sure I'm covered

I bet 25mph felt pretty quick :-)
I'm taking it to Windermere this weekend for my first trip, but obviously will have to stick around the 10mph speed limit..... Possibly ;-)
