Re: Boat insurance.

Geico is owned by Berkshire Hathaway, the investment company owned by Warren Buffett. He he did support Obama and Hillary in their election cycles. As far as I can tell he is not a Muslim, he's from Omaha and worth a bit over 77 billion dollars. As far as Geico being a horrible Insurance Company, in...

Re: Boat insurance.

As a follow-up on the insurance quote issue, I have now received two quotes from USboat/Geico. One is for "stated value" for my boat at $30,000. That means if I have a loss, Geico pays me the agreed stated value. The other quote is an "actual cash value" quote. In addition both q...

Re: Boat insurance.

That is correct. Under Florida law, an airboat is what's known as a "dangerous instrumentality." As such, the legal owner has strict liability for all injuries and/or death that occur on the Airboat, regardless of who was actually operating the Airboat. Instead of giving the lawyers only o...

Re: Federal Wild and Scenic River designation 4 Kissimmee River ?

I have concerns about the proposed designation. If this happens, you will have Federal oversight and control over Florida Sovereign property. I ask you, when has the federal government ever gotten anything right, especially when it comes to the use of land? Take a look at what the feds have done in ...

Re: Boat insurance.

I found out why the Markel rate went so high for me. I own my boat through a single asset Corporation of which I'm the sole shareholder, for liability reasons. Last year when Markel sold me the policy, they sold me an individual policy as if I owned the Airboat individually. This year they caught wh...

Re: Boat insurance.

The $839 and $639 premiums that you guys were quoted from Markel... What sort of coverage did you get? I have $30,000 for the hull, and $100,000 on liability, per person. How large are your deductibles?

Re: 1/4 rod keeps breaking.

Again, thanks for all of the suggestions. I already use the coupler nut idea, it keeps the rod from breaking off level with the top of carb and having to drill it out. I like the bolt idea, it has to be stronger than threaded rod. Before I drill and tap, I'll try it.

Re: 1/4 rod keeps breaking.

thanks for the responses. Safety wire done the first time the bolt snapped. The 1/4 inch hole is not oversized. I will have to check and see if the Holley has room to drill and tap to 5/16. However, it doesn't seem enough of a difference to keep it from snapping.

1/4 rod keeps breaking.

The center rod that holds my flame arrester and hood onto the top of my Holley Carb keeps snapping off. I have tried all kinds of threaded rod, including hardened rod, to no avail. I don't want that thing to fly into my prop. Any ideas?

Boat insurance.

I have my GTO insured with Markel. Last year,the premium was $710.00. This year, Markel wants $1,015.00 for the same coverage, and I have never had a claim. Anybody have a line on a company that doesn't cost like that? GIECO wants way more.

Re: First Airboat Help!!

I agree. I bought a boat the same day that my divorce became final. My boat has an occasional problem but she never argues with me and does not contain when I am out late gigging, and has never threatened to leave me because I rode another boat.

And you don't have to vote for him. Adam Putnam, current Agriculture Commissioner from a well established Florida farming/ranching family, is running on the R ticket, and he is pro-hunting, pro-hunting, pro-life, and will make a fine governor.

Re: Everglades Patrol

I read the Gladesmen book by Simmons and Ogden. A friend gave me the book. It is a great book, not because of the college professor authors, who collected a series of tales from real Gladesmen, but because each chapter is told by a Gladesman in their own words. The book paints a picture of how it wa...
