Hi Stevo,
I'm with Alan & Thomas Insurance Group. I called them and they were great, explained everything fully and was competitive against others I tried (can't remember who they were through sorry).
I insured sib, outboard and trailer for 90 for the year.

We will all have our favourites but like many others here I've been with Craftinsure (online) for many years. As long as your outfit can't exceed 23kts it will be a standard small boat policy for about 50.

Craftinsure Boat Insurance | Compare Yacht, Narrowboat, Dinghy, RIB, Speedboat, Canoe and Kayak Insurance

Craftinsure. Honwave 3.5 AE & Tohatsu 20hp both new in 2014 roughly 50-60 and easy to do online.

Most slipways and marinas will insist on insurance these days and some also the powerboat 2 which makes a lot of sense to be honest, the last thing I'd want is someone with no insurance hitting me. Not sure about the club bit, didn't think it was a requirement for New Brighton.

This country's becoming a money making sh--hole councils have a nerve in my opinion even thinking of charging especially when you see their operatives sat in lay bye's all supping tea doing sweet cook all.
Power boat level 2 fair enough or a basic boat handling cert if only for your own peace of mind.
Club member ? Why!
Insurance a must to protect you and others.
That's why I go up Scotland it's away of life up there using your boat there are costs but there fair
Rant over!

Well you are possibly at the danger of getting into politics there. But to help, a pb2 needn't cost as much as that, and if you have the skills then an ICC would probably satisfy them with direct examination possible.

However could you maintain a facility like that for the money even if you owned the land? Actually 65 p.a. Doesn't sound too bad if it is unlimited.
