Insurance for my 6.5m

Hi all,
I've been out of ribs for a few years so a bit our of date, im looking at insurance for my used Ribeye 650s with a 150 Yamaha which I will looking to collect next week.

The Rib will be used around Devon & the Solent for pleasure use with occasional water skiing, some fishing and general cursing. I've got near 20 years of boating experience both large motor boats & ribs
Can the panel guide me in the right direction with Insurance suggestions
Thanks
Waterbouy

I work for the same company (but in no way benefit from recommending John!), however he's helped a lot of forum members here (me included) and on the RHIBS/SIBS Facebook page so definitely give him a try.
