Cheapest is not always best ! Call some local /specialist brokers who advertise in mags & ask the sensible questions - do I need an OB lock? Does it need to be clamped/locked when on trailer? Are 'accesories'(life jackets /electrics) covered - is it covered driving down to launch it ? Cant go far wrong if you do that.

I'm with Porthcawl. They are always very helpful when it comes to sorting things out and adding things to your policy.

As promised here's my summary of quotes for our rib, listed to the left. The quote are fairly straight forward, no tubes/toys or skiing, and based on 10k, and does include legal assistance (10 to 12)

Last place Euromarine -- Euromarine whooriginally quoted 240, but when
I phoned to query it, they dropped it to 191.

Second Place -- Navigator and General (Zurich) my current insurers
175, they do not however operate a no claims
policy.

The winner -- Porthcawl at 133, including a 10% no claims bonus.

I'm still looking through their T&Cs but it looks good so far and they were helpfull on the phone.
