You get a new customer discount.
I keep swapping between Elepahant and Admiral who are both the same company. By swapping I get a new customer discount each year and stay within the same company.

I wouldn't buy a Ribeye myself but I don't have any beef with them. I'm NOT insured with Porthcawl and even though I've currently got 15,000 burning a hole in my pocket I'm not changing my boat because quite frankly my Searider is wonderful.

Anything else that you might like to spend your 15k on?
A nice Autosleeper Topaz VW 2.5TDI camper perhaps?

Nope!
I have so many things with motors I don't have time to use them all let alone to justify adding to them and I'm too attached to most of them to ever get rid.

To be honest, I can't even justify buying a new engine for the Searider at the mo as I trust the one I've got.A 2nd hand Yam 90 would be no improvement and may even be a step backwards as it'd be an unknown quantity and all the current new offerings are big lardy lumps that'd upset the rather nice balance of the boat.

Seriously though Richard has a point regarding NU. As soon as I can I'm going to check my policy.

My main concern - which I have mentioned before - is what happens if your engine is stolen or falls off? Most insurance companies seem to go by some trade price guide. It doesn't take into account engine condition or usage.

I would prob only get about 1500 for my engine - where am I going to find a similar engine for that sort of money? One sold on ebay for 5000 the other day and it was the older model than mine!!!

Unless you have a brand new engine it could cause serious problems - anyone know anything about this?

I had a such conversations with insurance companies. They grossly under value less than new outboards.

You could tell them to keep the money and ask them to supply the identical replacement engine they can get for 1500.
